BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



To the Citizens of Wilmington: 

We herewith transmit the Annual Report of the Town of V/ilmington for the 
year ending December 31, 196!+, 

Every effort has been made to give a clear and concise report so that you 
will know more about your Town Government and will therefore be better able 
to use its many services. 

Announcements made last year of industrial expansion in the Town, including 
the Eagle Can Company of Somerville, Polyvinyl Chemicals of Peabody and the 
recent announcement of Sweetheart Plastics 80,000 sq, ft. expansion of 
facilities, are proof that Wilmington is growing industrially and will con- 
tinue to grow. During 196i4. the Town was fortunate in having a new post 
office and new telephone facilities constructed to better serve our resi- 
dents. These along with other commercial expansions, such as the new W, T» 
Grant store and Robert Hall, help to insure a stable tax rate for the Town, 
Your Board of Selectmen is committed to a goal of encouraging industrial 
expansion to insure the economic well-being of the community and to provide 
job opportunities for our residents. 

During 196ij. the Town completed the construction of the Woburn Street School 
and began preliminary plans for the new West Intermediate School to be built 
in the near future, Wilmington had the distinction of being voted to one of 
the seats of the executive committee of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation 
Authority, In the coming fiscal year, plans are being made for a new library, 
new Town Hall, new bathhouse at the town beach, and the expansion of other 
recreational facilities to help make Wilmington a better place in which to 
live , 

The Board of Selectmen looks forward to the coming year as an opportunity to 
continue its work, to make Wilmington a truly great town and one of which we 
can all be justly proud. The support that the Board has received from the 
citizens of Wilmington has played no small part in the progress and pros- 
perity now enjoyed by the Town, For this reason, this report is dedicated 
to all Wilmington Citizens, 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rene J. LaRivee, Chairman 

Charles H, Black 

Wavie M, Drew 

John Brooks 

Lloyd C, Bender, III

Town Manager 



To the Citizens of Wilmington: 

The report which follows serves to explain the many varied activities of your Town govern- 
ment. These include daily services such as police and fire protection, and capital 
improvements such as new streets, sidewalks, and schools. It is my job, as Town Manager, 
to see that all of these activities are carried out in such a way that you receive the 
imaximum amount of service for each tax dollar you pay, 

Iks your Town Manager, I am proud to present the review of last year's operations contained 
in this report. Wilminp;ton 's accomplishments include: 

1, Locating four new potential well sites to increase the town's water 
supply capacity to meet the needs of our growing community, 

2, Establishment of an assessment policy by the Board of Assessors for 
assessing industrial and commercial properties on an equal basis 
with residential properties thereby correcting a major inequity. 

3. Completion of the new Woburn Street School and preparation of 
preliminary plans for a new West Intermediate School, 

4, Completion of a major land-use study along Interstate Highway 93 
and its four interchanges to guide the Planning Board in deciding 
on what use the Town should make of the land adjacent to this 
highway thereby capitalizing on Wilmington's prime asset, 

5. Continued efforts to attract new industries including the Eagle Can 
Company of Somerville, Polyvinyl Chemicals, Inc. of Peabody, W, T, 
Grant, Robert Hall, and others. 

6, Improved telephone and postal facilities to better serve the resi- 
dents of the Town. 

7. Development of tobogganing and skiing facilities in the Town Park to 
improve recreational opportunities for our growing community. 

8. Correction of sixteen major storm drainage problems to improve liv- 
ing conditions in various neighborhoods. 

This annual report highlights the comprehensive role played by the town government in the 
everyday lives of our citizens. With the cooperation and assistance of a fine Board of 
Selectmen, a sound administrative organization and the support of all citizens, we look 
forward to continued progress during the coming year.

Permanent Building Committee

ommittee has endeavored to perform the function of erecting and equipping public buildings,

uring the past year, the committee guided the construction and equipping of the Woburn 
treet Elementary School which was ready for occupancy when the regular school year com- 
enced in September of 196l\., 

arious sites were investigated prior to recommending the acquisition of 31»78 acres off 
arter Lane as the location for the proposed West Intermediate School and a future 
lementary school facility. 

lans, specifications, and bid documents for the V/est Intermediate School are at the point 
f readiness for public bid in February of 1965, with a construction completion date of

lOwn officials and at this time extends its most sincere appreciation to them and to the 

;axpayers whose votes of confidence enabled the committee to expedite its programs, j

i 

ooperation through information has been the basis of the committee's success, and its j 
ntention is to proceed and progress in its purpose to serve the townspeople. r

Planning Board 



General Planning: 

The members of the Planning Board undertook the review of the Zoning By-law during 1961|., 
to insure maximum protection for the inhabitants of Wilmington through sound and orderly 
growth. With the rapid growth of residential, industrial and commercial land the Planning 
Board directed its attention, through study, towards: 

1, Land use along Route 93 within the length of the Town boundaries; 

2, Studies on the advisability of Garden-type Apartments; 

3, Proper enforcement of our Zoning By-law; 
I4., Working with other boards. 



Subdivision; 

After the requirements of the subdivision control law were met, numerous subdivisions were 
fully considered with attention focused on roads, accessibility, drainage, trees, etc. 

Some of the subdivisions which this board worked on were Pinewood Tilstates, Alderwood 
Estates, Benson Park, Ksquire Estates, De Carolis, Forest Park, Jackson Heights, etc. 

We also had an Industrial subdivision known as Lopez Road, 



Plot Plans; 

During the course of the year, the Planning Board reviewed numerous plans. They made sure 
that all requirements were fully complied with and carefully checked all plans with the 
Town records, maps, and proper town officials. 



Consultant; 

The Planning Board engaged a Planning Consultant, Samuel Snow, to prepare a comprehensive 
study of Garden-type Apartments and land use along Route 93* 



Policies ; 

The Planning Board has undertaken to work closely with other boards by holding special 
hearings with all town bodies as invited guests to keep them informed as to the Planning 
Board's present undertakings. 



General; 

The Planning Board takes great pleasure in working with other boards, off ering their ser- 
vices, if they so desire. 

The members of the Planning Board sincerely want to thank all those who attend their meet- 
ings and avail themselves of a better relationship and understanding of the functions of 
this board o 



Public Library 



The most significant indication of the growing demand for library services is the fact that 
1700 new borrowers were registered during I96I4., bringing the total to approximately 6,000. 
The circulation of all library materials showed a growth of 8%o 

\3 a means of providing increased service, the Trustees voted to extend the hours during 
(jhich the Library is available. Commencing January 1, 1965» the Library will be open 
Monday through Fi-ldaj from 10:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 2:00 p.m. until 
5:00 p.m. - an addition of Jh hours a week. 

In an effort to accommodate more books, several new book cases have been added this year. 

Because legal obstacles have prevented the Town from taking over the old St. Thomas Church 
oroperty, the Trustees felt that they should reconsider their recommendation to convert 
the church for library use. Since the original plan was intended to provide library 
facilities for only a limited period; and two years have already elapsed, this temporary 
neasure has become less practical. The Trustees therefore voted to rescind their decision 
to renovate the church and voted to build a new building instead. 

The Trustees wish to express their gratitude to the Literature Committee of the Wilmington 
Women's Club which presented the handsome sign at the entrance to the Library and is 
responsible for the seasonal changes in the window boxes. We also extend our appreciation 
to the Library Staff for their unfailing cooperation and efforto

oorrowers is 5»956, The Reference Department is in constant use by adults as well as 
3hildren, and many books are borrowed on inter-library loan. 

Because the Story Hour attendance reached capacity early in October, it was necessary to 
limit registration to 14.0, The continued success of this popular program is due largely 
:to Mrs. Theodore McKle and Mrs. Chester Tompkins who give so generously of their time 
■and talent, 

The highlight of the year was the book jacket contest for the children in Grades I through 
[/I held during Children's Book Week in November, There were more than two hundred entries 
vhich were on exhibition for three weeks. A prize of a book was given by the Women's Club 
Tor the best book^cover submitted in each grade. The judges were Mrs, Anderson, Supervisor 
of Art in the schools, and two assistants. We extend our thanks to those who gave much 
time and thought to picking the winners. Great enthusiasm and remarkable talent was shown

he above gives a resume of the activities of the department for the year 1961^. - just facts 
nd figures. 

t may x^ell be mentioned here that Sergeant Talbot Sidelinker retired on April 1, 196[|., 
fter completing some thirty years with the department, 

he year 19614. saw two more cruisers added to the department - something that was long 
cjverdue - assuring us of more patrol service to the townspeople, V/hile on the subject of 
.ruisers, let me remind all residents that these cars "are out there" all hours of the day 
nd night. If you see something in your immediate area that you feel should be reported 
;o the police, nut that call in to us (658-3331) immediately - for the cruiser may be just 
. minute away. Too many times we hear people say, "We were going to call, but by the time 
'ou would get here from the station they would be gone," Please call us, 

in concluding my report, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the members of 
;he department for their devotion to duty. My sincere thanks and appreciation to the 
'omen Traffic Supervisors for the wonderful job they do throughout the year. To the many 
.epartment heads and members of their resoective departments who do so much for my depart- 
lent, thanks so much for your continued support and cooperation. Special thanks to the 
'Gang at Town Hall" for all they do for myself and the department, 

jast to be thanked, but certainly not least, are the Town Manager and the Board of 
Selectmen, Thanks for your effo.rts in 196[|., and I look forward to a banner year in 1965.

Recreation Commission 



he Commission through the use of part-time personnel has attempted to serve people of all 
ges in one area or another with a diversified summer and winter program, 

wo new play areas were established during 196I|.; namely, Boutwell School Playground and 
■orth Intermediate School Playground, These areas offered programs designed to meet the 
eeds of children between the ages of five to fifteen years in a supervised program of 
ctivities. Parents and children in these two new areas have expressed their appreciation 
f the program, 

t the town beach several major changes took place. The main parking lot was transferred 
'rom the original location to the area surrounding the bathhouse. The entire beach and 
arking area was resurfaced with appropriate fill and graded to meet the contours of the 
and. 

through the cooperation of a group of volunteer workers headed by Mr. Howard Lafaver, the 
stablishment of a boys' basketball league became a reality. Each Saturday, games were 
onducted at the High School Gym throughout the winter m.onths. A pilot group also experi- 
mented vrith a summer basketball league at the Tennis Courts during the summer evenings, 
«oth projects have proved to be worthwhile, and it is hoped they will be carried on in the 
i'uture . 

f'he Commission is very grateful to the School Committee for their cooperation in the use of 
•.heir buildings and grounds which contribute toward the success of such urograms as have 
leen mentioned.

Maintenance of Public Buildings 



To the Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington, I respectfully submit my first 
annual report on behalf of the Maintenance of Public Buildings Department, 

The staff of the department was increased by three men the past year, from twenty-five 
full-time to twenty-eight full-time. Two men were assigned to the new Woburn Street School, 
and the third replaced two part-time men formerly at the Walker and Whitefield Schools, 

3o far as possible, the department will try to do all repairs and upkeep to the buildings 
/jithin the capabilities of the men and equipment. At times it will be necessary to use 
outside contractors on some functions that require a skilled technician in that particular 
field. With some changes of existing personnel, we have been able to acquire an assistant 
painter to help with the upkeep of buildings and eliminate outside contractors, 

\ few of the major repairs accomplished this year are as follows: 

Boutwell School: 

Former oil burner problems have been eliminated. 

Some improvement has been made to the ventilation of the kitchen, halls, 
and cafetorium areas, 

Buzzell School; 

A new hot top play area has been paved. 

We are in the process of cleaning the back area for a play field, 
* Center School: 

The old existing drain system for the yard has been located and excavated 
so that the spring rains may be drained off. 

Glen Road School: 

An improvement in the ventilation of the hall, kitchen, and cafetorium has 
been done. 

Major repairs have been made on the boiler shell. 
North Intermediate School: 

Some of the roofing and heating problems have been corrected by the contractor 
under the guarantee. 

Our grounds at this school are still under litigation forestalling our maintain- 
ing them. 

High School; 

Received eight new skylights, and the bonding company has agreed to repair the 
roof leaks, 

Roman House: 

Porch roof has been redone, and a new septic system installed. 
Library: 

New shelving and half of the roof done. 

Police, Fire Station, and various other buildings were repainted. 

In conclusion, may I express my gratitude to my personnel for their diligence, and to all 
other departments for their cooperation to a new Superintendent,

Town Engineer! 



The Engineering Department continued to operate with only two men during the year 196L|., 
These consisted of the Town Engineer and students from Northeastern University working on 
the co-operative plan. The demand for the services of the department continued to be heavy, 
and it was not possible to handle all the work requested from other departmentSo 

Surveys were made and plans prepared for Garden Avenue and Nunn Road to be built under the 
Betterment Act, The location of Nunn Road was questioned by the abutters on the road, and 
the surveys and plans made by the department were of great help to the landowners coming 
to an agreement to settle the controversy. 

The active subdivisions include Jackson Heights II off Shawsheen Avenue, Hathaway Acres 
Extension off Gxanderson Road, Esquire Estates off Marie Drive, Alderwood Estates off Woburn 
Street, Ferguson Subdivision off Lowell Street, Signore Development off Salem Street, 
DeCarolis Subdivision or the extension of Marcia Road, and the industrial subdivion along 
Lopez Road off Concord Street, Several other subdivisions were considered during the year, 
and construction will start as soon as weather permits. 

Drainage continued to be one of the main concerns of the department. As mentioned last 
year, easements were obtained and necessary funds were voted at the Town Meeting to correct 
bad drainage conditions at different locations. 

Plans were prepared and engineering descriptions given for four large tracts of land to be 
taken by the Town for additional wellfields to increase the water supply of the Town, It 
is planned to perform the field survey as soon as weather permits in those areas so as to 
establish exact boundaries. 

Lines and grades were given for the construction of Dadant Drive and the extension of 
•Linda Road and Hamlin Lane, Boundaries were established for the parcel of land acquired 
from Mary E, and Rose V, Surrette to increase the parking lot behind the Police Station; 
also boundaries were established for the extension of the play area near the Buzzell School,

Highway Department 



As in the past, all regular routine work was completed before my regular highway maintenance 
and construction began. All catch basins and culverts cleaned, streets patched, street and 
traffic signs installed, fences repaired, and many streets swept with a power broom. Many 
new signs installed on various streets leading to the schools for the protection of the 
children walking, I now have some on order and will install them on arrival. Three two- 
way radios were purchased for the department; one for eech pickup and one for a plow and 
sanding truck. I can contact every department in town, plus the Town Hall, with the excep- 
tion of the Police Department who can be reached via the Pire Department, I would very 
much like to have at least two more. 

Sidewalks ; 

14., 600 feet of new sidewalk constructed at a cost of $2,60 per foot. This cost per foot 
cannot be used as a measuring stick for other sidewalks contemplated. The cost per foot 
depends entirely upon existing conditions. 

Drainage Problems; 

The department still is faced with many drainage problems. Some were eliminated under 
Chapter 8I and others by special appropriation. The Town, in some cases, was unable to 
obtain drainage easements from the property owners, I believe, at this writing, some of k 
the easements have been obtained. If so, they will be taken care of in 1965* 

The Highway Department constructed a parking area behind the Buzzell School and the 
Wildwood School. All material used was paid for by the School Department, 

Cemetery; 

As in the past four years, the Highway Department constructed two more roadways, and 
Trimount Bituminous Products Company laid the hot top. Haiiled in a few hundred yards of 
rough and fine fill for plot expansion. Helped Mr. Downs haul loam and spread it to com- 
plete the section. All materials used were paid for by the Cemetery Department, 

Tree Department; 

During the winter months, the two departments combined in our annual tree removal program. 
The Town picked up the performance bond on Arlene and Catherine Avenues in the Signore 
Subdivision, I laid the required amount of bituminous curb and back filled with loam. 
More loam will have to added before seeding to complete the project. 

Chapter 90 Maintenance; 

The entire allotment was spent for resurfacing with hot top; Middlesex Avenue from 
Salem Street, to High Street; Shawsheen Avenue from Main Street to Bridge Lane, 

Chapter 90 Construction; 

Chapter 90 construction on Ballardvale Street almost completed. The construction of two 
head walls, some shoulder work and two fences will complete the project in 1965o 



26 



Chapter 8l; 



With some money added from my expense account, many streets were surface -treated and 
several drainage problems eliminated. The following streets were surface -treated , all or 
in part as deemed necessary: Harvard Avenue, Emerson Street, Lloyd Road, Marjorie Road, 
Chestnut Street, Jaquith Road, Cunningham Street, Balila rdvale Street, North Street, Woburn 
Street, Glen Road, King Street, Clark Street, Adams Street, Brattle Street, Harris Street 
and Mystic Avenue, The following streets were sealed with asphalt and back covered with 
sand: Broad Street, Butters Row, Taplin Avenue, Phillips Avenue , Burnap Street, Carter 
Lane, Dorchester Street, Wild Avenue, and Dorothy Avenue. Drainage installed on Clark 
Street, Pairview Avenue, Forrest Street and Lawrence Street. One short section on Clark 
Street (near Dr, Pagan's) was widened. Catch basins and culverts were cleaned for the 
second time. 

Betterment Streets: 



Hamlin Lane completed. Cedar Crest Road not completed because I was unable to purchase 
loam; will be completed in 1965o Linda Road not completed; need about 100 yards of loam 
to finish it, Dadant Drive is not completed; it needs some shoulder work and loam to 
finish it. 

Snow Removal: 



: Snow removal is still an expensive problem. The demands on the Department are forever in- 
creasing. However, with the help of hired equipment, we have managed, to fulfill our 
(Obligations to the public. The two Walter Snow Pighters have been taken off the road for 
; safety reasons and two new Pord trucks added to the fleet, 

JAt this writing, most of my equipment is in good condition. One pickup, a 1953* is ready 
for the junk yard and must be replaced. The 1953 International dump truck should be 
:replaced. The backhoe attachment on the front-end loader must be replaced. My Power 
iSweeper should be replaced in 1966 at the latest. All Town-owned equipment is serviced at 
imy garage by two mechanics; all parts being paid for by the department to which it belongs, 

;At this time, I am taking the opportunity to thank the other departments for their coopera- 
tion and help, great or small, especially during the winter months. The results prove 
iwhat cooperation can obtain. Also the Town Manager, for his unselfish efforts in helping 
ime to try and solve the many problems facing the Department; and the Board of Selectmen 
;for understanding and realizing the Department has many of them.

Tree Department 



Tree Departmentt 

During the year 1961;, the Tree Department carried on its usual work of tree removal, trim- 
ming low limbs, removing broken limbs, and removing broken tree tops. These trees are 
diseased or dead; therefore, they are taken to the town tree dump and burned to prevent 
further infestation of other trees. Our shade tree spraying program is on the increase 
each year. This is due to the new homes and developments being constructed in our Town, 
We continued to trim the trees surrounding the fire alarm system which has reduced short 
circuits causing false alarms. Our tree feeding program was continued this year. Twenty- 
five trees were treated. 

Our Christmas tree on the town common, which has been permanently planted, was decorated 
by this department under the direct supervision of the Tree Warden, 

Moth Department; 

All shade trees were sprayed with Gfo and 12% D,D,T, for gypsy moth, tent caterpillar, fall 
web worms, aphids, pine shoot moth, oak blights, maple leaf spot, and dieback. All front 
lawns were sprayed with 6^ D,D,T, for Japanese beetle and milky disease. In various areas 
throughout the Town we encountered gypsy moth and tent caterpillar nests. These eggs were 
treated with creosote. 

Elm Leaf Beetle and Dutch Elm Disease; 

The elm leaf beetle spraying program starts in April and continues into August, This year 
seventy-five elms were lost through this disease. One hundred and ten samples were sent 
to Amherst State College to be tested, and reports came back that seventy-five were in- 
fected. At various times we have been helped by the State Tree Department and the 
Wilmington Highway Department in removal and burning of these trees. The State furnished 
men, truck and equipment for three weeks at no cost to the Town, To counteract the loss 
of our elms, our tree planting program is in operation. This program has been in effect 
for five years. This year we planted over one hundred and sixty-eight maple trees in 
various sections of the town. 

Unsightly roadside stumps no longer plague the town, thanks to a tree stiJmping machine 
rented by the town. Stumps are ground down below the earth level; the hole is then filled 
with gravel and loam. 

Poison Ivy; 

Brush killer was sprayed on stone walls, streets, and around homes where poison ivy was 
found. The roadside was sprayed, with special attention being given to street corners 
where the motorist's view was obstructed, creating an accident hazard. 

Mosquitoes ; 

Homes, swamps and bog areas were sprayed again this year, which is the usual practice of 
this department. We also used "Toss It's", These are little gelatin cylinders which 
dissolve in the water releasing chemicals which kill the larve of the mosquitoes. During 
the winter months, the swamps are dusted with a powdered chemical while they are still 
frozen. During spring thaw, the chemicals contact the larve. None of the chemicals 
referred to are harmful to humans, fish or wildlife. 



28 



Tovm Forest; 



The town forest has been cleared of all underbrush. Dead trees have been removed, and 
dangerous limbs have been cut. The road around the forest has been cleared and trimmed. 
The ball park was sprayed with regularity throughout the summer months. 



Conservation Commission 



3orn at the annual town meeting in March 1961^, the Conservation Commission held its first 
meeting in April with Mr, LaRivee, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen presiding. Seven 
niembers were appointed to the Commission. 

It might be well in the first annual report of this Commission to outline its purposes and 
functions. Its purpose is the promotio© and development of the natural resources and the 
protection of the watershed resources of the commtinity. It is further empowered to plan 
and carry out a program for preservation of open spaces within the miinicipality. As the 
official resource agency of the community, the Commission maintains an index of all open 
lands (uplands and wetlands) and makes recommendations to the state or municipality as to 
their proper use and management. It acts as the coordinating agency of the community on 
conservation matters. It may conduct researches on related problems and prepare informa- 
tional and educational materials for the community's benefit. It may accept gifts of land 
funds, or buildings on behalf of the community and manage donated or purchased properties. 
It may also, for conservation purposes, acquire easements and other lesser interests in 
land • 

During the year, the Commission joined the Massachusetts Association of Conservation 
Commissions, started compiling an open land index, and read innumerable laws, pamphlets, 
and publications on Conservation, 

The Commission is acquiring a fisherman's access area along the Shawsheen River, This 
represents the first land which will be managed by the Commission, 

The Commission is participating with the Commonwealth, the Essex County Green Belt Associa 
Ition, and virtually every town in the Ipswich River Watershed in a large project aimed at 
the protection of this area and to preserve the watershed, 

before station of lands ravaged by gravel operations and a town education program are 
;scheduled to begin shortly, 

We all must realize that conservation is a National, State, Town, Commission and, most 
Important of all, and INDIVIDUAL project. The seven commission members need the help of 
the Town of Wilmington, Only by a concerted community effort can areas be preserved for 
ours and future generations.

Cemetery Department 



Cemetery; 

In 1961; as in the past, the Cemetery Department assisted the Highway Department with snow 
removal operations. In addition to our regular work, we installed a ceiling in our garage, 
thus we receive greater benefit from the heating system. Our men painted the interior of 
the building; and as storage space is limited, we built shelves and hangers in an attempt 
to eliminate the hazard of equipment and materials piled in corners. 

General routine work was carried on. A niimber of sunken graves have to be filled in and 
seeded each year, and those damaged by summer heat have to be refurbished. An unusual 
amount of watering had to be done last year to keep newly seeded lots and sections from 
drying out. 

A new lawn, covering an area of approximately 12,000 sq. ft,, was built on the Church 
Street side of the Walker School, At the Buzzell School, about 2^,000 sq, ft, was resur- 
faced. Loam was hauled in with our truck, spread by hand, graded, and seeded by Cemetery 
help. Regular watering had to be done at these sites due to exceptionally dry weather. 
The School Grounds Maintenance was separated from the Cemetery Department in July, 

New crosses for the Soldier's Lot were supplied by the Memorial Day Committee, These are 
made of aluminum and replace the wooden ones which needed repair each year. Cemetery men 
installed them in cement bases. 

This year brought to a close the hot-topping program which began five years ago. Approxi- 
mately nine hundred (900) feet of roadway was completed in time for the Memorial Day 
Program, We now have a few short streets left which we hope will be finished a little at 
a time during the next few years, 

A new section was graded, loamed, fertilized, and seeded. This contains two rows of graves 
with a planted strip between the rows, totalling eighty-four (81;) family lots. This sec- 
tion is approximately three hiondred and fifty (350) ft, long and forty-five (i;5) ft, wide. 
The approximate material cost of this area was nine hundred dollars, while the return to 
the Town will be in the area of nine thousand. Judging from past experience, it is esti- 
mated that these lots will be sold within the next three years, making it necessary to 
keep developing new sites. 

Wooded sections of the Cemetery are being cleared and filled in preparation for advance 
development. Rough fill has been hauled in from a project at the Buzzell School for use 
in low spots. 

Heavy foliage this year caused an unual number of man hours to be consumed by raking. Many 
of the leaves were pulverized and left on the lots for fertilizing, but most were hauled 
away. 

Due to the fact that we are having trouble with people entering the cemetery for reasons 
other than to visit the graves, we have been forced to close some of our gates. Entrance 
may be gained through the main gate on Middlesex Avenue between the hours of 7t30 a.m. and 
sundown. 

We would also like to mention a few of the Cemetery "rules and regulations" which it has 
become necessary to enforce more strictly. Proprietors and relatives are forbidden to do 
any digging or planting in the Cemetery; there must be no glass used or left on the lots; 
nothing shall be taken from a lot, except by permission of the lot owner; and the Cemetery 
Department has the right to remove from a lot anything which it considers to be unsightly.

Parks ; 

The park and common were maintained regularly by the Cemetery Department. The Silver Lake 
Beach was maintained as usual. Two hundred and fifty tons of sand have been stockpiled. 
This will be spread about the swimming area in the spring of 1965. 

A skating rink was built on the common. Lights were installed so that general skating was 
enjoyed at night. 

At this time, I would like to express my thanks to the Town officials and the various Town 
departments for their assistance throughout the year.

The Town's annual consumption of water has more than doubled in the last 10 years. The 
maximum amount pumped for a day (maximum demand) has also more than doubled. The safe 
yield of the three existing well fields is about 3,000,000 gallons per day total. The 
total safe yield capacity of the well fields was equalled or exceeded many times during 
the year. The total rated capacity of all the pumping equipment is I4., 000, 000 gallons 
rimning 214. hours a day. To allow for breakdowns and emergencies there should be a reserve 
pumping capacity of at least 1,500,000 gallons a day. Only an \inusually cool summer pre- 
vented the restriction of water this year. 

A gravel packed well has been constructed at the Town Park, Bids for the construction of 
the building and equipment were received, but construction of these facilities is being 
delayed pending completion of tests of the well to meet the requirements of the Department 
of Public Health. 



The test well investigations for the entire Town were completed and the Engineer's report 
was received in April, 1961j.. The report recommends the purchase of land, the phased con- 
struction of four pumping stations, additional water mains and possibly a new standpipe 
to meet the present and future needs of the Town, Based on the recommendations of the 
Engineer, Town authorization was requested and received in a special Town Meeting on May 
18th to acquire land off Salem Street for a future well field. 

Land takings have been planned for the three additional well fields recommended by the 
Engineer, and Department of Public Health approval of these takings has been obtained. The 
Town meeting will be asked to authorize the acquisition of the land and the construction 
of the facilities for these three pumping stations beginning as early in 1965 as possible.

Sarah D. J. Carter Lecture Fund 



This year the Sarah D. J. Carter Lecture Committee offered two programs to the people of 
Wilmington, On Saturday evening, April 25th, there was a unique performance by America' 
dynamic "Llords International", a marionette concert theatre. On Sunday afternoon, 
November 8th, the Committee presented a thrilling and informative account, with colored 
slides, of the I963 successful ascent of Mt. Everest by Dr. Malcolm Maynard Miller, 
scientist in charge of the geological program on the expedition. Both programs were en- 
joyed by enthusiastic audiences.

The Urban Renewal Project was closed out with H. H, P. A. of New York on October 27, I96I4., 
200-1 

Complete disposition of the Veteran's Project was accomplished during the past year, Pinal 
distribution of proceeds of the sale took place late in October, 1961;, 

667-1 



The forty units under the Elderly Development have been kept fully occupied this past year. 
Only three (3) vacancies occurred during the year; all were filled without loss of revenue. 

The painting of all ceilings and walls of the entire forty units of the project was com- 
pleted. All loose and broken floor tiles in the forty units were replaced. 

Still anticipated in this project is a heating problem, for which aid has already been 
requested from the State engineering staff. Also, the inside and outside painting and 
refinishing of the recreational building and the need for painting of exterior doors and 
refinishing of cabinets in the forty units must be determined. Also, gutters and downspouts 
must be repaired and the Authority has need of a new snow blower.

Board of Public Welfare 



The Wilmington Board of Public Welfare respectfully submits its Annual Report for the year 
196i|., The Board consists of Mr. Maurice O'Neil, Chairman of the Board, Miss Florence 
Balkus and Mrs. Anna Low as members of the Board, 

The four employees of the Board are Walter P. Coleman, the Director of Public Assistance, 
who also serves as secretary to the Board, Mrs. Miriam Sullivan is the Senior Clerk and 
Stenographer, Miss Josephine Kane is the Social Worker and Mrs. Irene Manning is the Clerk- 
Typist, All employees of the Welfare Board are hired under the Merit System and have Civil 
Service status, which is required vmder the law. 

The five categories of assistance under the supervision of the Board of Public Welfare are: 
General Relief, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Disability Assistance, Old Age 
Assistance and Medical Assistance to the Aged, The last four categories come under the 
Department of Health, Education and Welfare and are reimbursed by the Federal and State 
governments for the greater part of the aid rendered. General Relief is supported jointly 
by the State and Local governments with the Town assuming the greater share. 

All Public Assistance agencies are subject to the laws, rules and policies set forth by the 
Federal and State governments. Failure to comply on the local level could result in the 
loss of reimbursement. 

Public Assistance programs established through the Social Security Act are vital in helping 
many persons attain greater self-reliance and in preventing many of the children from in- 
heriting the poverty of their parents. These programs provide the needy with income plus 
the social services that will enable them to achieve as much economic and personal inde- 
pendence as possible. Assistance comes in three forms: in the money with which recipients 
purchase such necessities as food, clothing, shelter; medical care which is authorized by 
the Agency; and in social services provided by Welfare agencies. The combination of these 
services is the basis for the prevention and reduction of dependency. The increasing amouni^ 
of social legislation enacted by Congress in recent years reflects the growing and nation- 
wide extent of these needs. Pour out of every 100 American children depend upon Federally 
supported programs of Aid to Families with Dependent Children, It is estimated that over 
1,000,000 families are now receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children, 

Most dependent families have had limited education, live in poor housing and do not have 
the opportunity to take part in community life. This lack of education, job opportunities, 
and a life of indebtedness are believed to be the greatest factors in the desertion of their 
families by fathers and the separation or divorce of parents whose families are now recipi- 
ents of Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Death of the father is probably the 
smallest factor for a family receiving this type of aid. 

This Agency is also concerned with the Taxpayer, We are not only responsible for the care 
of the indigent and sick, but we are also responsible to those who pay the bill. In a 
sense, we are the liaison between the State Department of Public Welfare and the taxpayer 
who furnishes the money. This Board also believes that the average person accepts the 
various relief programs as necessary and as part of the cost of good government. We 
further believe that another reason for this favorable climate is that our programs are 
administered on a local level where people have a better opportunity to see what they are 
getting for their tax dollar. 

We, as workers in Public Assistance occupy very responsible positions in the State, for we 
control, in a sense, the welfare of a considerable segment of its population. It is a 
serious responsibility which calls for dedicated people. I believe that most of our 
niimbers are just that - dedicated people « 



Members of the Welfare Board again attended various conferences and workshops during 19614. 
for indoctrination on new laws, rules and policies affecting Welfare programs. Attendance 
at some of these conferences and workshops is mandatory by the State Department of Public 
Welfare to insure local communities of State and Federal funds. 



OLD AGE ASSISTANCE 

This category is a Federally-sponsored State plan, administered by law through the local 
Boards of Public Welfare, The law requires local Boards to aid aged persons, sixty-five 
and over, who are in need and who have resided in Massachusetts for one year prior to 
application. Need is determined by applying budgetary standards set up by the State 
Department of Public Welfare, Some other requirements are personal property, such as cash, 
savings, bonds, etc., not to exceed $500* Liens are placed on property if the applicant 
has an interest in such property. 

The Federal Government reimburses local Boards $5i4.,00 per month for each case aided. The 
State pays two- thirds of the balance and the remainder is paid by the local community, 

i 

The Board, in its budget request, does not include the Federal share, as this amount, by ' 
law, is set up in a separate account and can be used only by the Board of Public Welfare 
for the Old Age Assistance program. The Board, in its budget request, must raise the State 
and Town's share. The State's payments are returned directly to the Town's Excess and 
Deficiency account and are used by the town. The assessors, however, anticipate this reim- 
bursement based on the prior year's returns, and it does not adversely affect the tax rate. 

During the past year, the laws which most affected Old Age Assistance was an increase of 

$1,00 per month in Leisure Time Activity, making a total of $6,00 per month for this f 

budget item. Another change in the Old Age Assistance laws was the increase in exemptions t 

to children of recipients of Old Age Assistance, Married children are now allowed $6,000 I 

net plus $1,200 for each dependent child. This increase in exemptions eliminated most j, 
married children, A single child living apart from his parents is allowed an exemption of 

$2,950; a single child living with his parents is exempted $2,700, 21 

During the year 196l\., eighty cases were aided under this program at a total cost of i\ 
$67,909.21. « 



AID TO FAMILIES WITH DEPENDENT CHILDREN 

!Vid to Families with Dependent Children is another Federally-sponsored category administered 
by law through the local Boards of Public Welfare to aid children that are deprived of 
parental support through desertion, mutual or legal separation, divorce, incarceration, 
death, disability, or unemployment of the parent. 

The Federal reimbursement on this program is $20,00 per person. State reimbursement is one- 
third of the total expenditure. The local community pays the balance for the aid rendered. 
The Board does not include the Federal share in its budget request. The Town must raise 
the State share and the local share, because the State's share is returned to the Town's 
Excess and Deficiency fxmd. There is no settlement required on this program. However, 
the children must have resided in the Commonwealth for one year prior to application. 

During 19614. members of this Agency appeared in various Courts a total of 33 times and were 
90% successful in all these appearances against delinquent fathers in our efforts to seek 
guilty judgments for non-support and subsequent support orders for their families. 
Receipts from this source amounted to $11,953.50 for 196l\., an increase of 8% over 1963, 
During I96I4., forty-eight families were aided under this category in Wilmington with a 
(total expenditure of $73,268.37. 

The State and Federal Governments are again pressing for more services on this category, 
Services being stressed are homemaking, counseling, physical and mental health, education, 
sreconciliation of parents and rehabilitation. 



k.9 



DISABILITY ASSISTANCE 

Disability Assistance is another Federally-sponsored State plan administered by law by the 
local Boards of Public Welfare, It requires the local Boards to aid persons who have been 
declared permanently and totally disabled by the Medical Review Team of the State Depart- 
ment of Public Welfare and who are in need. Need is determined by budgetary standards set I 
by the Department of Public Welfare, The Federal reimbursement for money expended in this 
category is $14.6,50 per month for each case, and the Town's share is 25^ of the total cost '\ 
each month. The balance is reimbursed by the State Department of Public Welfare, The 
same manner of financing is used as in Old Age Assistance and Aid to Families with Dependei- 
Childreno ' 

During the year 19614., nine cases were aided on this category. Total expenditure for 196i|. 
was $114., 811,580 



MEDICAL ASSISTANCE FOR THE AGED 

Medical Assistance for the Aged is also a Federally-sponsored State plan administered by Ij 
by the local Boards of Public Welfare, This program was born in I960 when changes made 
under the Social Security Act established this category under the Secretary of Health, 
Education and Welfare, The bill, as passed at that level, recognized a need for medical , ! 
care for aged persons. It, as in other Federal and State programs, requires local Boards 
to aid persons over 65> who are medically indigent and reside in the Commonwealth, No 
settlement is required under this category. 

Under Chapter 78I of the Acts of I960, the other requirements briefly are as follows: Aged 
persons 65 or over, who reside in the Commonwealth, are entitled to medical assistance, 
provided they do not have an income, if single, of more than $l50,00 a month, or if marrlec 
$225*00 a month, and providing further that if single they do not have bank deposits, 
securities, cash on hand and /or similar assets amounting to more than $2,000 or if married, 
more than $3,000, Persons eligible for this form of assistance shall be entitled to part 
or all of the cost of (1) in-patient hospital ward care; (2) public medical institution 
services; (3) nursing home care; (I4.) physician's services; (5) out-patient or clinical 
services; (6) nursing services; (7) physical therapy and related services; (8) dental 
services; (9) home health care services; (10) laboratory and x-ray services; (11) pre- 
scribed drugs, eye glasses, dentures and other prosthetic devices; (12) diagnostic screen- 
ing and preventive services; (13) any other care or remedial care recognized under the law 
of the Commonwealth, and (114.) other medical care in accordance with the Department of 
Public Welfare Medical Care Plan, 

Reimbursement for care under this program is fifty per cent of all monies expended by the 
Federal government, two thirds of the balance by the State, the remaining one-third balance 
to be assumed by the local community, , 

During the year 19614., ninety-one cases were aided under this program at a total cost of 
$63, 978, 35* During the year I96I4., the only change was the increase in exemptions of 
legally liable children which is as follows: Married children are now allowed $6,000 net 
plus $1,200 for each dependent child. This increase in exemptions eliminated most married 
children, A single child living apart from his parents is allowed an exemption of $2,950; 
a single child living with his parents is exempted for $2,700, 



GENERAL RELIEF 

This program requires local Boards to meet the community's statutory obligation to relieve, 
a person in need. The decisions on who shall be aided and the amount given is left 
entirely to the local Board's discretion. Unlike the Federal programs where the final de-- 
cision rests with the State through an appeal process, the local Board makes the final 
decision. The local Boards, through their policies and decisions invariably attempt to 
reflect community thinking. 



50 



The State Department reimburses local communities for 20% of the cost of General Relief. 
There is no settlement requirement on this program. During the year 196I|., 1^.5 cases were 
aided under this category with a total expenditure of $8,536.06, 



ADMINISTRATION 

The reimbvirsement formula is as follows: For cases which require no special services all 
Administration costs are: ^0% by the Federal Government, 25% by the State and the remain- 
ing 2^% to be paid by the local community. For cases that require special services, we 
receive an extra reimbursement for salaries and travel costs as follows: 75^ by the Federal 
Government, 12^% by the State and the remaining 12^% is paid by the local community. 
Administration expenses applied to General Relief are not reimbursable, but these costs 
were only a small fraction of the total expenditure. 

Administration costs cover all expenditures by the Board to administer the five programs 
under its jurisdiction; namely. Old Age Assistance, Medical Assistance for the Aged, 
Disability Assistance, Aid to Families with Dependent Children and General Relief, Federal 
funds, as in other programs, are restricted by law for the sole use of Administration, 
The State's share is returned to the Excess and Deficiency Fund and is used by the Town for 
any purpose, 

GENERAL COMMENTS 

The Board would like to point out at this time that the Federal Government has and still is 
putting great pressure on the State Department of Public Welfare which in turn exerts this 
pressure on all local Boards, This pressure means more social services and more paper 
work with the resultant need of more qualified workers. This pressure also holds the 
threat of the withholding of Federal and State funds if we do not comply with the ever- 
increasing demands of the Federal and State Governments. A Social Worker in a Public 
Welfare Agency (if we are to meet the demands) should have some knowledge of Law, Psychology, 
Sociology, Homemaking, Marriage Counseling, Child Counseling, Vocational Counseling, 
Accounting, etc. 

In closing, we would like to cite an anonymous quotation: "I am only one, but I am one, 
I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do I ought to do, and what I 
ought to do, by God's grace, I will do." 

This report was prepared for the local Board of Public Welfare by its Director of Public 
Assistance, Walter F. Coleman, 



Veterans' Agent 



The Wilmington Veterans' Agent respectfully submits its Annual Report for the year 1961j.. 
Mr, James F, Banda, Veterans' Agent, and Mrs. Vera F. Mills, Secretary. It is governed by 
the General Laws, Chapter ll5, with strict compliance to this Chapter, rules and policies 
set Xorth which governs the disbursement of aid. 

Veterans' Services is for the benefit of the needy veteran and his immediate family who 
lhave been subjected to unforeseen needs. Serving the year 196i|., the Veterans' Service 

expended $67,000, This reflects an increase in the number of cases handled, however, the 
I greater portion of this payment is due to payments to hospitals, doctors, dentists and 

medication. Of the sum expended, the Veterans' Services receives 50^ reimbursement from 

the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 

'The sum expended this year will remain approximately the same barring any increase in 
tmedical, surgical, hospital costs and increase in budget.

School Committee 



To the Citizens of Wilmington: 

The School Committee of the Town of Wilmington, in accordance with Chapter 72, Section ij., 
of the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, herewith presents its report for 
the year 1961j.«

Mr. Richard E. Keane, Vice Chairman 

Mr. Arthur J. Brewster, Secretary 

Mr. John P. Hartnett 

Mr. Arthur V. Lynch

This has been a very busy and rewarding year for all of the teachers, the administrators, 
and the parents concerned with the work of the School Committee and its contributions to 
the advancement of the public schools of Wilmington. To keep abreast of local, state, and 
national trends pertaining to curriculum improvement, teachers' salaries, new schools, 
report cards, supervisory organization, and special programs, the Committee made the follow-

6o Initiated Town Meeting action for the construction of a new Intermediate 
school off Carter Lane for occupancy in September, 1966 

7» Initiated Town Meeting action for the creation of a committee to study 
the need for a regional vocational technical school 

8, Reduced the load of high school English teachers and department chairmen 
to strengthen the high school program of studies

TEACHER ELECTIONS AND RESIGNATIONS 



Of major concern to the Committee - in fact, to all School Committees in the area - is the 
increasingly large number of young women who do not remain in the profession for even 
moderate lengths of time because of marriage or maternity. Failure to complete a full year 
of duty is not uncommon. If it were not for a fairly strong substitute list and the 
availability of prospective teachers at the end of the first semester, the education of 
many children would be seriously disrupted. Despite the risk, these young women are a 
tremendously valuable recruitment source and, in most cases, extremely capable. To bypass 
them entirely for more mature women would not be in the best interest of the school system. 
Reason for concern is amply demonstrated in the data outlined below. 

Resignations were received from twenty eight teachers during the year for the following 
reasons : 



The Committee elected ten teachers to tenure and appointed thirty eight teachers to fill 
staff vacancies - twenty five for replacements and thirteen for the new positions caused 
by growth, the opening of the new Woburn Street School, and the up-grading of the 
curriculum. 

Miss Evelyn Desmarais, Building Principal of the Wildwood School, was named Supervising 
Principal of the Woburn Street School District, which is made up by the Whitefield School 
and the Woburn Street School, Mr, Harold E, Driscoll, Chairman of the Social Studies 
Department and part-time Assistant Principal of the High School, was appointed full-time 
Assistant Principal and placed in charge of the Work-Study Program, lie, Joseph P, Beaton, 
veteran high school teacher and Director of the Evening School, was appointed Chairman of 
the Social Studies Department, New Building Principals appointed were Mr, Paul Bodenstein 
and the Misses Joanne Myers and Dorothy Nylin, all Wilmington teachers. 

As of December 31» 19614., the professional staff - including teachers, principals, depart- 
ment chairmen, and supervisors - stood at l88 compared to 175 1963» 

Schools were in session l80 days beginning September I4., 1963* and ending June I8, I96I4.0 
The Committee held twenty three regular meetings and three special meetings during the 
year, 

tin closing, the Committee wishes to express its sincere gratitude to the growing number of 
'teachers, civic groups, parent groups, and other agencies which have supported our work in 
supplying educational leadership on all fronts for the Town of Wilmington,

Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee and the Citizens of Wilmington: 

I herewith submit my fifth annual Report as Superintendent of the Wilmington public Schoolsi^ 
for the year ending December 31 » I96I4., ! 

We can look back on a year of solid progress in the Wilmington Public Schools, and it gives 
me a great deal of pleasure in behalf of my colleagues to briefly describe and comment 
about the programs the School Committee has initiated this past year. This will constitute 
the main part of the report. The balance will concern itself with the usual highlights 
and data about the operation of the total school program. 



NEW PROGRAMS 

Modern Mathematics: 

Undoubtedly the major accomplishment was the full implementation of the modern mathematics 
program in the elementary grades. It came only after a diligent search for the best text- 
book, an intensive in-service program for all elementary teachers, and short orientation 
courses for parents. All were under the direction of the Messrs. Robert P. Barrett and 
Francis P. Kelley, who had assistance from the elementary supervising principals. These 
important preliminaries were followed up in the fall with classroom observations, demonstra) 
tion lessons, educational television programs, and conferences to give the teachers the 
guidance and the confidence that were needed to carry out such a massive and complex under-' 
taking. 

At this writing, it is a little too soon to evaluate the real worth of the program, but 
early reports do indicate the following facts: (1) The general reaction of students, 
parents, and teachers is cooperative and favorable, (2) Discovery and iinderstanding are 
replacing rote learning, (3) Arithmetic can be interesting. Of course, the new program 
has raised some pertinent questions, to mention a few: Is mastery of arithmetic facts and 
fundamentals being overlooked in the new approach? Are proper steps being taken in the 
fourth, fifth, and sixth grades to insure meaningful transition from the old to the new 
methods? Do some teachers feel insecure in working with the new materials? These and 
other related questions are receiving the attention they warrant, 

Work-Study Program: 

Designed to keep potential drop-outs in school longer and to help the pupil who must sup- 
plement the family income, this program got off to a splendid start in September of 1961|., 

The program permits the high school student to combine school studies with gainful employ- 
ment. The student's school day consists of three basic subjects - English, mathematics, 
and social studies. At 11:00 a,m,, his school phase ends, and he reports to his employer. 
His work experience consists of a minimum of twenty hours a week for which he is graded as; 
he is in any other school subject by his employer and the Work-Study Coordinator, The 
student is also compensated. 

Prom the outset, the thirty-five students enrolled in the program have exhibited a better 
attitude toward education, have seemed to be more cooperative in adult-student relationshi; 
have maintained better attendance, and - in many instances - have seemed to be much happie^ 
than when they had to spend the entire school day in classes totally unsuited for their 
academic capabilities. 



61+ 



ork-Study Prop;rani (continued); 



his fine program would not have been possible without the close cooperation of the indus- 
rial and commercial leaders of the community. For this, the school officials, the parents, 
nd the students are very grateful, 

Igh School Science; 

wo new courses were introduced this year; (1) "Physical Science Laboratory Course" for 
ccelerated pupils in grade nine and (2) "CHEM Study" for accelerated grade eleven students, 

n the former, emphasis is placed on laboratory fundamentals and techniques in preparation 
'or chemistry and physics in the junior and senior years, respectively. In this course 
he student takes one half year of laboratory techniques in chemistry and one half year in 
ihysics. The "CHEM Study Course" is a modern approach to the study of chemistry stressing 
;he experimental method rather than the theoretical method, 

ioth courses are in keeping with the stepped up science sequence initiated in 1963o 
few Secondary School Report Card; 

fith ability grouping well established on the secondary level, it was not only logical but 
jquitable that some system be devised whereby students would be marked in a meaningful and 
ustifiable manner commensurate with their ability and achievement. As a result, a com- 
mittee of secondary teachers, guidance personnel, and administrators was formed. It held 
several meetings and devised the quality point system which went into effect in September, 
L96I4., The quality point system has not replaced nor supplemented the marking system, but 
?ather refined and re-inforced it, 

%rks are designated in numerals with 65 being the lowest passing mark. At this point, it 
>?ould be well to add that in September of I96I4., 55 was established as the lowest mark a 
student could attain and remain eligible to remove his deficiency in summer school. The 
lonor roll remains the same with three phases - high honors, honors, and honorable mention, 

Quality points are assigned to four groupings that are determined on the basis of ability; 

1, Advanced Grade Placement 

2, High 

3, Medium 
Low 

The quality points attached to each group on the basis of marks 65 - 100 are 2,5 - 10,00 
for advanced grade placement; 2,0 - 8.0 for high; 1,5 - 6,0 for mediiam; and 1,0 - i^-.O 
for low. 

The new system is not final. It will undergo revisions as parent, student, and teacher 
reaction emerges in the coming months. 

Regional Vocational School District Planning Committee; 

In October, I96I4., the Town voted to create a special unpaid committee to be known as the 
Regional Vocational School District Planning Committee, The Town Moderator appointed the 
following to the Committee; Mr. Richard E. Keane, Vice Chairman of the School Committee; 
Mr. Bernard P. McMahon, High School Principal; and Mr. Richard C, Pelletier, a resident of 
Wilmington and an Advertising Manager, 

This Committee has met with similar committees from Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Dracut, 
and Tewksbury for the purpose of studying the advisability of establishing a Regional 
Vocational School District, The full Committee has been very active for the past several 
months exploring possible sites, examining curricula, and studying the fiscal and legal 
responsibilities of the various towns should the school be approved. The local Committee 
will make recommendations relative thereto at some future Town Meeting, 



65 



Regional Vocational School District Planning Committee (continued); 



In light of the recently published recommendations by the Massachusetts Education Commis- 
sion pertaining to the need for vocational schooling, the importance of this Committee and 
its findings loom larger than ever. 



OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND HIGHLIGHTS 

School Libraries t 

The two secondary school libaries, the High School Library and the North Intermediate 
School Library, are continuing to increase their usefulness by more intensive training in 
library skills and by extending the use of their well-developed reference services. 

Industrial Arts; 

This department has undergone considerable physical change to meet curriculum improvements 
initiated in 1963 by the relocation of the drafting room and the addition of a related art 
room. The latter room is ideal for formal teaching situations, and as a library for 
reference and visual materials in the field of industrial arts, 

Reading; 

The annual fall comprehension tests in grades 1-6 revealed that 91^ of the children were 
reading at grade level. Of equal importance is an indication that the steady build-up of 
supplementary readers and library books in the classrooms is beginning to show reward in 
the overall reading ability of the pupils. At the secondary school level, more intensive 
measures such as small group instruction, expanded use of reading kits, individual tutor- 
ing, and in-service training for teachers, are underway to Improve the reading ability of 
the students. 

Guidance ; 

The department is now operating on a very broad front with the firm establishment of pro- 
grams of study for the superior, the average, and the slow student; educational and 
vocational counseling services, referral services with the Lowell Mental Health Clinic, 
and a comprehensive testing program augment the effectiveness of the department. 

The department reported the following progress of the Class of 1961j.: 

At Work 

In the Armed Services 
Attending Technical Schools 
Attending University and/or College 
Attending Junior College 

Attending Other Higher Educational Institutions 
At Home (Married) 

Health: 

The end of the year showed that the general physical health of the 14.100 public school 
students was being carefully accounted for. Home visits, school visits, parent conferences 
physical examinations, and preschool registration were all carried out with skill and 
quiet efficiency by the three nurses under the direction of the school physicians. 

General physical examinations were given to 1,305 pupils, eye examinations to 2,903» and 
ear examinations to 2,930 during the year.

Building Program; 



The building program is on schedule, but some overcrowdedness can be expected in the 
slementary grades during the 1965-66 school year. Unless a huge home building program 
materializes, class load should return to normal when the West Wilmington Intermediate 
School opens in September of 1966, 

k thle tics; 



The elevation of ice hockey to a varsity status brought a turn-out of sixty willing and 
eager candidates. The high school team is a member of the Merrimac Valley Hockey League, 
newly created with the opening of the Merrimac Valley Porum in Billerica. This infant of 
the high school varsity sports program is progressing quite well. It shows promise of 
being the number two sport after football in student participation and fan interest. 

At the elementary level, the round robin basketball and baseball competition among the 
pupils of the Boutwell, the Glen Road, and the Wildwood School Districts provided a whole- 
some outlet for the energies of the three groups of boys. The program is under the able 
and dedicated direction of the male faculty members of the respective school districts. 



RECOMMENDATIONS 

The future of the public schools in Wilmington is now tied in with the fate of the 
'Massachusetts Education Commission Report which at this writing is in the hands of the 
General Court. If enacted into legislation, the far-reaching and highly laudable recom- 
mendations - which call for more teachers, more schools, more libraries, more kindergartens, 
more special services, and more education in general - would correct many of the short- 
comings that the School Committees have tried to correct in the past. Only the lack of a 
strong and stable tax base prevented the action necessary to eliminate the deficiencies 
listed in the commission report. 

In conclusion, the entire staff joins with me in extending sincere appreciation to the 
School Committee, the parents, and our public servants for their guidance in the cause of 
improving the quality of education in the public schools of Wilmington, 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harold S, Shea 
Superintendent of Schools

Regional Vocational School District 



The Regional Vocational School District Planning Committee was created by vote of the Town 
at the Special Town Meeting, October 5» 196i]., in accordance with Chapter 71 of the General 
Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 

The membership of the committee, appointed by the Moderator, is as follows: 

Mr. Richard E. Keane, Chairman (School Committee Member) 
Mr, Bernard P, McMahon, Treasurer 
Mr, Richard C, Pelletier, Secreta3?y 

Since this committee has been in existence only a short time, this is a report of progress. 
However, the committee hopes to complete its study and make recommendations to the Town by 
submitting a report to the Board of Selectmen by March of 1966, or sooner if possible. 

The committee has joined with comparable committees from Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, 
and Tewksbury to form a Regional Vocational-Technical School District Planning Board, The 
committee from Dracut also participated until January 1965* when they decided to join in a 
district with Lowell, 

This Regional Planning Board has reviewed pertinent sections of a Vocational and Technical 
School Survey made by the Massachusetts Department of Education, Division of Vocational 
Education, and has met with representatives of that office as well as with a representative 
of the School Building Assistance Commission, 

At this stage there appears to be a definite need for a Vocational and Technical School in 
this area. The Regional i^laiining Board has formed subcommittees to study such things as 
proposed curricula, finances, proposed regional agreement, etc. Surveys are being con- 
ducted. Estimates are being studied. Availability of state and federal assistance is 
under investigation, A study is underway of the state "Summary Report of the Special 
Commission Relative to Improving and Extending Educational Facilities in the Commonwealth" 
(popularly referred to as the "Master Plan", the "Willis Report", or the "Harrington 
Report") insofar as it relates to the regional school concept or occupational education. 

Although many hours have been and will be devoted to this study, the committee takes 
pleasure in being of service to the Town, especially to the children who will benefit in 
the future. We wish to thank the many people who have given us their cooperation, particu- 
larly the Finance Committee, the Town Manager and the school personnel.

to believe and do believe that the records, or copies of records, made by election 
officers of said Wilmington of the votes cast at the Election held in Wilmington

with less votes than were actually cast for it; and we believe that a recount of the

Town Clerk of Wilmington 



September lii, 19614. 



e , the undersigned qualified voters of the Town of Wilmington do represent that we have 
■eason to believe and do believe that the records, or copies of records, made by the elec- 
;ion officers of said Town of Wilmington of the votes cast at the Democratic Primary held 
n said Town of Wilmington for the office of Representative in General Court 3Uth Middlesex 
'istrict are erroneous, in that Fred P, Cain, Tomothy J, Cosgrove, William J, Scalley, 
lobert A, Vigneau, Albert E. Wilde were credited with more votes than were actually cast for 
hem and Daniel L. Joyce, Jr. was credited with less votes than were actually cast for him, 
e believe that a recount of the ballots cast in said Town of Wilmington will affect the 
omination of said candidate. We therefore ask that all votes cast for said office at said 
>rimary be recounted as provided for in General Laws, Chapter ^Ij., Sections 135 and 135iA, 

'hirteen registered Democrats in the Town of Wilmington signed the above petition and their 
ames were certified by the Board of Registrars as qualified voters in the Democratic Party, 

ccordingly the Board of Registrars met and set Saturday, September 19, 196ij. at the High 
school Cafeteria, Church Street, Wilmington, Massachusetts at 9:00 a.m. as the time and 
;iace of the recount of this office, 

Ihe Town Clerk sent letters to all the candidates for said office informing them of the 
• ime and place of the recount and their rights at this recoiont. Letters were dated 
jeptember 1$, 196L|., Return receipts on file, 

he recount began at 9:05 a.m. and ended at 10:31 a,m, 

he attorneys and observers were permitted to copy the figures shown on the ballot box 
'egisters of those ballots cast on September 10, 196ij. Primary. They also took note of the 
ocks and seals on the boxes containing the ballots cast at this election, 

'red P. Cain and Daniel L. Joyce, Jr. were present and each had eight (8) observers and 

ne (1) attorney representing them. No other candidate or observer appeared for admittance

RECOUNT PETITION - MIDDLESEX COUNTY COMMISSIONER 



'Received by Town Clerk November 10, I96I4. at 2:[|.0 p,m, 

,T0; Town Clerk of Wilmington, Massachusetts - November 9, 19614. 

We, the undersigned qualified voters of Wilmington do represent that we have reason 
to believe and do believe that the records, or copies of records, made by the 
election officers of said Wilmington of the votes cast at the Election held in 
Wilmington for the office of Middlesex County Commissioner are erroneous, in 
that William G, Andrew was credited with more votes than were actually cast for 
him, and John F, Cremens was credited with less votes than were actually cast 
for him. We believe that a recount of the ballots cast in said Wilmington will 
affect the nomination or election of said candidate. We therefore ask that all 
votes cast for said office at said Election be recounted as provided for in 
General Laws, Chapter ^li. Sections 135 ^.nd 135A. 

PThere were fifteen (15) valid signatures on said petition which the entire Board of 
iRegistrars certified on November 12, 19614., 

■'On Monday, the l6th of November 19614., the Board of Registrars instructed the Clerk of said 
board to send letters to the four candidates stating that November 21, I96I4. at the High 

[School Cafeteria, Church Street in Wilmington at 9:00 a,m, the recount of the office of 
'County Commissioner in the Middlesex County of which Wilmington is part thereof would take 
)place as per petition. Consequently the Town Clerk did send the above letter as instructed 
ion November 16, I96I4. advising the candidates that there would be thirty tellers and two 
Tor total tally work, and each candidate could have an observer present for each teller 
)providing they presented a letter signed by the candidate for each observer working for 

"ihim. No other person would be allowed in the room where the recount was to take place 
lother than the Board of Registrars, the observers and an attorney for each candidate who 
also must present a letter for admission. Letters were sent to the following candidates 
iwith "return receipt requested": 

William G. Andrew 

; John P. Dever, Jr. 

j John F, Cremens 

! Albert L, Daigle 

The Town Clerk did receive the return receipts showing that each candidate had received 
instructions in time to prepare for the recount.

Town of Wilmington

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

To the Citizens of Wilmington: 

The past year has produced many changes in Wilmington. Some are of major 
importance. Notably, the rezoning of over 125 acres in the area of Route 93 
and Concord Street to permit the development of a large industrial park, 
reassessment of the entire community to assure equal treatment for all tax- 
payers, construction of a new intermediate school, adoption of Personnel 
Regulations and a new Building By-Law. 

Major personnel changes included the appointment of a new Town Manager, 
Mr. Richard Henneberger, following the resignation of Mr. Gerald Bouchard 
to accept a position in Michigan. A new Principal Assessor, Mr. Anthony 
Krzeminski, has also been appointed to replace Mr. Frederic Grimes, who 
took a position in private industry. 

Among the important events that occurred during 1965 was the increased 
industrial growth in our community. Major additions to existing plants and 
new industry both contributed to a growth rate that made Wilmington one of 
the leaders in the state. 

The formation of an Electric Power Study Committee, Sewer Committee and 
reorganization of the Planning Board have all been done for future improve- 
ments in the Town. We know that these citizen groups will make major contri- 
butions to the solution of our problems in these areas. 

We believe that the major accomplishment of the Town during 1965 was the 
restoration of confidence in the fairness of the Town's policies to all taxpayers 
employees and to industry. We believe also that these accomplishments were 
necessary to encourage the further desirable development of Wilmington. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Wavie M. Drew, Chairman 
Lloyd C. Bender III 
Charles Black 
Rene LaRivee 
Paul H. Niles 




TOWN OF WILMINGTON

TOWN MANAGER 



To the Citizens of Wilmington: 

The Office of Town Manager was vacated by Mr. Gerald Bouchard May 28, 1965, 
held by Temporary Town Manager Robert Peters until August 16, 1965, when 
the office was assumed by R. M. Henneberger on that date. Unfortunately the 
Town of Wilmington does not enjoy a reputation of long tenure for Town Managers. 
It would behoove the Town to create and maintain an environment conducive to 
assuring longer tenure for managers who have demonstrated proven capabilities. . . 
for the ultimate benefit of the Town rather than the Manager's personal benefit. 

Despite the problem just noted professional administration has encouraged and 
promoted the development of a service organization to best serve your needs. 

It would be duplication of effort to state what was accomplished in 1965 as this | 
Report discloses at great length the work and programs of departments, boards, ' 
committees and commissions. j 

It would sound 'textbookish' to discuss my philosophy of management to the average | 

resident. I do want to say that my efforts will be directed toward the development l 

of subordinates and employees numbering about 150 who deserve the credit for a i 

job well done. Further, where my efforts can be meaningful I will encourage and 

insist on a greater degree of cooperation between the many administrative facets 

of our Town government. . . and, it is here that the 50 individuals serving in numerous 

appointive positions deserve thanks and praise for their efforts which provide them 

little other than the satisfaction derived from the experience of serving. 



Respectfully submitted

To The Citizens of Wilmington: 



If you are interested in serving the Town in any function, activity, trusteeship, or on any board, committee, 
or commission, please fill out this form and mail to the Town Manager, Town Hall, Wilmington, Mass. 
The filling out of this form in no way assures appointment. All vacancies will be filled by citizens deemed 
most qualified to serve in a particular capacity. 

While the Town has numerous positions of citizen responsibility, I would like to see an expression of more 
interest in Civil Defense activities to strengthen our position in public safety. From this type of training 
we might find interest and abilities to be recruited on our Police Department. Also, we would surely find 
interest and abilities for our Fire Department where Wained men serving as call firemen could greatly 
benefit our community. 

Of particular interest to me would be the formation of a Wilmington Chapter to "Keep America Beautiful. " 

Section 3 of the Town By-Laws states how the Annual Town Report shall be published, and by tradition the 
same format is used. The Board of Selectmen would welcome your suggestion on how you would like to see 
this report presented and space has been provided for your reaction.

MAINTENANCE OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS 



To the Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington, I respectfully submit my second annual report on 
behalf of the Public Buildings Department. 

The staff of the department has been increased by one man to a complement of twenty-nine full-time men. 
With the addition of this man to the Grounds section we have been able to construct two new baseball 
diamonds one at the Glen Road School and at the North Intermediate School. Two new skating areas for 
the winter have also been added at these areas. 

After acceptance by the Permanent Building Committee the grounds at the North Intermediate are now 
being cared for by this department. The grounds at the Woburn Street School have only been partially 
accepted as further seeding is needed in the rear and side areas of the school by the Contractor. 

The new bathhouse is well under construction and will be ready for occupancy for the 1966 swimming 
season. Cooperation of the other Town Departments in this project has been greatly appreciated. 

The old bathhouse has been dismantled by the department and with the permission of the Board of 
Selectmen sold for one dollar to Camp Forty Acres to erect it for use at their camping area. 

The tennis court lighting on Church Street has been installed and is being used during the winter months 
for skating. We are asking the voters for an appropriation of twelve thousand dollars in 1966 to erect a 
new four court area at the North Intermediate School that also would be used for winter skating. 

During the year the department has carried on the continuous work of cleaning, painting and repairing 
all Town owned buildings and grounds. Our Town has undergone a vast change since 1950, and the 
buildings have grown from the small four-room schools of the older days to the large new modern schools 
of today. With this change the department has had to be increased and modernized to take care of the 
many different types of new materials and finishes being used in modern construction. In 1966 we will 
acquire the new West Intermediate School; this will require three new custodians to maintain the building. 
At this time the Town is only half grown in projected pop\ilation figures and by 1980 many more new 
buildings will have been added to enable the Town to accommodate the residents. 

In conclusion, thank you for the opportunity to have been of service to the Town during 1965.

Bonds: 

The Bonds for the West Intermediate School amounting to $1, 445, 000 were offered for sale in January 
1965, and we received fifteen bids with a low of 3. 0%. 

The bonds for the Wellfields in the amount of $463, 529 were offered for sale in August 1965, and we 
received twelve bids with a low of 3. 0%. 

The bid of 3. 0% in each case was excellent and below the current market trend. 
Employees: 

With the adoption of Chapter 32B by the Town in March 1965, the insurance program was offered to all 
employees and was implemented in July 1965. Most of the eligible town and school employees 
participated. 

Many of the town and school employees contribute to the newly formed Credit Union, and their payments 
are made through payroll deductions. 

1 Investments: 

During 1965 the program of investing idle funds from Bond Issues was continued, and in addition after 
1 taxes were received. Revenue Funds were also invested in November and December: 



( General: 

1 In November 1965 through the facilities of their computing program, the Middlesex Co\mty National Bank 
' sorted our payroll checks for the first time, and soon they will sort all our checks and give us an out- 
standing monthly balance. This is a very valuable time saver.

POLICE DEPARTMENT 



In preparing this report I am including statistics prepared by Sergeant Kelley showing the arrests made 
in 1965 as well as the miscellaneous items that the Department is engaged in. 

I am also including a report prepared by Sergeant Ellsworth on Training and Services. This I feel is a 
necessary project to bring to the attention of all residents what the Department is doing along these lines. 

It may well be mentioned here that John Imbimbo was promoted to the position of Lieutenant of Police. 
As such, he becomes second in command of the Department and Administrative Assistant' to the Chief. 
Sergeant Shepard has been assigned the Investigation Division of the Department. Sergeant Kelley has 
been assigned the Records Division of the Department. Sergeant Ellsworth has been assigned the Training 
Division of the Department. 

It is with a great sorrow that we are called upon to record the death of Anita Buckley, a member of the 
Traffic Supervisors Division. 

My most sincere thanks to all members of the Department for their untiring efforts and devotion to duty. . 
to the Traffic Supervisors who do such a tremendous job. . .to all the departments for the wonderful coop- 
eration extended my Department. . . to those at the Town Hall who accomplish so much for our welfare. . .

SPECIAL REPORT ON TRAINING AND SERVICES 

Members of the Wilmington Police Department have been receiving training as far back as the early 
1940's. The training consisted at that particular time of schooling in criminal law and seminars on court 
procedure and evidence. Chief Paul J. Lynch and Lieutenant Imbimbo were the ones that received the 
training at that time. As time went by and new members came to the present department, more and more 
men went to the classes on criminal law and the seminars given by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

The best school for criminal law was at Suffolk University under the direction of Professor Harry 
Bloomberg, known as the expert in this field and also the policeman's best friend in the field of education. 
Starting back in the 1940's the roster of the department that attended Bloomberg's includes Chief Lynch 
and Lieutenant Imbimbo and as they came on the department Sgts. Shepard and Ellsworth. Patrolmen 
Joseph Cuoco, Donald Mercier, Anthony Langone, James Palmer, James Cuoco and others that wanted 
to be police officers also attended this school. 

Federal Bureau of Investigation seminars have been given for many years and have been attended by 
quite a few members of this department. These seminars include classes on court procedure, evidence 
in relation to police work and how to conduct investigations and interrogations. Members that attended 
these seminars were Chief Lynch, Lieut. Imbimbo, Sgts. Shepard, Kelley and Ellsworth; patrolmen 
Markey, Joseph Cuoco, Dolan and others. 

In I960 Wilmington had its first men attend the Mass. State Police Academy. This was accomplished by 
former Town Manager Cecil Lancaster and Chief Paul Lynch. The officers that attended this school at 
this time were Charles Ellsworth and Anthony Langone. The course was of four weeks duration and the 
men had to live at the barracks during the week but could come home on weekends. The training included 



19 



1) Criminal Law, Z) Motor Vehicle Law, 3) Report Writing, 4) Observation techniques, 5) Effective 
Speech Evaluation, 6) Unarmed defense and disarming evaluation, 7) First Aid. The officers from 
Wilmington ended up with the highest academic averag.es of the class. The officers also qualified with the 
use of their service revolvers and were trained in the use of the 30-30 Winchester rifle, the 45 caliber 
Reising semi-automatic rifle, the 45 caliber Thompson sub-machine gun, the 12 gauge shot gun and were 
familiarized with the gas gun and other gas weapons. 

Other officers since I960 who have attended the Mass. State Police Academy were John Harvey, Daniel 
Ballou, James Cuoco and Vernon Randall. All these officers excelled in their training and kept Wilming- 
ton in the position of being "better than average. " 

Lieutenant Imbimbo, Sgts. Shepard and Ellsworth extended their training to the college level when they 
first started to attend Northeastern University. It began when these three men took a course in Police 
Supervision in the Law Enforcement program at this university. (This by the way is the only college in 
this area that grants degrees in law enforcement thereby raising the police officer to a professional 
standard). Lieutenant Imbimbo also attended the criminal law courses at Harvard University and with 
him went officers Dolan and Mercier. So we can say that some of Wilmington's finest "went to Harvard. " 
Sgt. Ellsworth is presently attending Northeastern University with the intent of getting the degree in Law 
Enforcement and to help train present and future police officers of Wilmington. 

Wilmington is also quite fortunate in having the finest marksman with his service revolver in the entire 
New England area. We are also quite fortunate to have police officers that are trying very hard to beat 
him at the game. The man is Sgt. Shepard and the officers that would be considered pressing him are 
officers Harvey, James Cuoco and Randell. 

Sgt. Shepard attended the F. B. I. Instructors training school at Camp Curtis Guild in Wakefield during 
the years 1956, 1959 and 1961. He topped the best shots in this area in a demonstration put on for town 
fathers, superior officers and friends. Sgt. Shepard also conducted instruction periods in our own pistol 
range and made it competitive by having contests between shifts. 

Officer James Cuoco and Vernon Randell both excelled with firearms at the Massachusetts State Police 
Academy. Officer Cuoco fired a perfect score in the practical pistol course and officer Randell was 
right behind him with an almost perfect score. 

The Reading Police Department conducts a school in firearm training at Camp Curtis Guild. Wilmington 
sent four officers to this school. They were officers John Harvey, Joseph Duffy, Richard Jenkins and 
Robert Shelley. All men qualified. Officer John Harvey is not only recognized as a real good shot but is 
qualified to make ammunition for the department's use to further train all officers on the job. 

Officer Charles Dolan has recently completed a three-month training tour with the Massachusetts State 
Police in Fingerprint Identification and Photography. He handles all this work for our department. 

Officers Langone and Palmer have completed a three-months training period with their K-9 dogs Roscoe 
and Zip respectively. This is a new field in Wilmington and is a good deterent to many types of crime. 
Films are in the making that will be shown to the towns people, the actual work that these dogs do. 

Many other courses and seminars have been attended by all members of this department such as the 
F. B. I. seminars on Search and Seizure and Civil rights programs that are so important in law enforce- 
ment today. 

This year with additional money for training and new men we will extend better police service to the 
Town of Wilmington. The Chief of Police has a program for this additional training and better services 
for you the people of Wilmington. Major crimes have been held to a minimum in the Town of Wilmington 
and with the proper training and staff Chief Lynch feels that the department can do a better job in the 
days to come.

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee and Citizens of Wilmington: 

I herewith submit my sixth annual report as Superintendent of the Wilmington Public Schools. This 
report is for the year ending December 31, 1965. 

The best possible public school program within the town's ability to pay for it -- this is the goal 
which the administrators, the teachers, and the other members of the school department seek for the 
children of Wilmington. It is a pleasure in behalf of my colleagues to review with you to what extent the 
goal was achieved this year, and how it might better be achieved in the years to come. 

THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROGRAM AND GOALS 

Moving in concert with the sociological and the intellectual forces which are currently molding 
elementary education, the staff concentrated on the following activities which are worthy of attention and 
commendation: 

Operation Head Start: The Economic Opportunity Act of 1965 made it possible for the town to launch a 
project called "Operation Head Start, " designed for pre-school children from economically deprived 
families. The program, under the direction of Harold E. Driscoll, who was assisted by three professional 
primary teachers and a corps of assistants, was offered to three classes of fifteen children each for a 
period of six weeks this past summer. Strengthened by participation in well planned experiences aimed to 
develop their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical capacities, forty-five children were able to 
enter grade one in September better prepared than would have been the case had they not participated in 
the program. 

Modern Mathematics: This program, which was implemented in September of 1964, has now had one full 
year of operation. Teacher evaluation of this program indicates that definite gains have been made in the 
teaching of mathematics in the elementary schools, They find that students are better able to follow the 
development of a procedure, that they approach new concepts with greater interest, and that they have a 
better understanding of numbers and how to use them more effectively. 

This does not mean that in the course of one year we have solved all the problems dealing with the 
teaching of mathematics or that indications are present which would allow us to say that all pupils hence- 
forth will find fractions, per cents, or any other phase of arithmetic exceptionally easy. For example, 
word problems are still presenting much difficulty, especially in the upper grades; to reduce this problem 
to insignificance in one year would be impossible. We do hope for improvement in this area, but it is 
something that requires time and continuous effort. Learning of any type is not easy, especially in the 
abstract areas, but a good attitude toward learning and an approach which arouses interest can do much to 
bring about a desired result. 

Reading : Coming to grips with all the major issues -- readiness, acceleration, word attack, testing, 
retardation, recall -- which affect this vital part of the elementary program, the reading staff, working in 
conjunction with the teachers and the principals, introduced co-basal readers in grades one, two, and 
three; tutored 300 pupils needing special help in reading; added over 1, 000 books to the library and 
supplementary lists; compiled a "Book of Games and Devices" as an aid to developing reading skills; and 



21 



extended the use of reading laboratory kits to all grade levels. Of singular note and receiving national 
recognition was the publication of an article in the International Reading Association Journal "The Reading 
Teacher" (November, 1965 issue). 

In-Service Training: To keep up with the rapid changes that take place in methodology and content in the 
fields of mathematics, science, and reading, workshops for teachers were held in these areas during the 
past year. In science, the aim of the workshop was to develop teacher confidence in preparing and doing 
experiments in the classroom. This was sorely needed to prevent elementary science from becoming just 
a supplementary reading exercise. In the mathematics workshop, the teachers observed fellow teachers 
demonstrate the teaching of selected topics which were giving them trouble. All agreed that the help 
obtained from this type of workshop was superior to the conventional lecture and the question and answer 
approach. In reading, the aim was to continue to build up skills in the teacher's ability to teach all phases 
of reading. 

Looking Ahead: Too attain goals that will keep Wilmington abreast with the best practices in elementary 
programming and to insure the maximum development of our Children's talents and abilities, the School 
Committee can anticipate 1) a revision in the social studies program; 2) a systematic attack to upgrade the 
written language skills of our pupils; 3) a replacement of obsolete schools -- Center, Walker, Whitefield; 
4) additional staff and equipment in the fields of art, music, physical education, library services, speech 
therapy services, and counselling services; 5) the inauguration of elementary school science and mathe- 
matics fairs; 6) a revision of the report card; and 7) the establishment of a curriculum materials center. 

Many of these goals can be met with the existing staff and with only slight increases in budget 
commitments. For others, only a massive state aid program as outlined in the Massachusetts Education 
Commission Report (The Willis Report) will bring them into being. The General Court's reluctance to 
pass appropriate legislation this past year in support of the latter is disappointing to all concerned with the 
improvement of public education in Massachusetts. 

THE SECONDARY SCHOOL PROGRAM AND GOALS 

The year 1965 marked the midpoint between evaluation of the high school by the Visiting Committee in 
i960 and the next evaluation which should take place in 1970. It is interesting to note that after five years 
60% of the recommendations made by the Visiting Committee have been accomplished, 23% are planned for 
the future, and the remainder are considered invalid. Looking back, we discover the following accomplish- 
ments: 

Art: An increase of 25 art majors over last year's number is indicative of growing student interest in this 
fiild. 

Business Education: Our graduates are still being placed in excellent positions. An increasing number are 
continuing their education at business schools after graduation. 

English: An in-service linguistics program for English teachers (grades 7-12) was launched by Mr. Robert 
Hamilton. A variety of literature materials was introduced for the different levels of English classes. 
Additional college preparation in English, on an after school arrangement, was sponsored by Miss Mary 
Muldoon. Hundreds of students took advantage of the opportunity to attend live theatre presentations thanks 
to the efforts of Mrs. Sandra Horwitz, Mrs. Carole Kaplan, and Miss Eileen Kennedy. 

Home Economics: This area continues to expand in ever increasing numbers. This year has seen the 
beginning of an advanced foods course and the utilization of four f\ill-time staff members to carry out the 
complete program. 

Industrial Arts: The program revision of two years ago is starting to bear fruit. Boys are acquiring more i 
specialization and preparation in their respective shops than heretofore. The major development has taken [ 
place in the electrical shop where a basic course in electronics has been initiated. 



22 



Foreign Language: The growth in this area during the past five years has been phenomenal. The national 
average increase has been 300%; locally, it is 600%. We now offer five years of French, three years of 
Spanish, German, and Latin. As the numbers increase, the latter three will be offered four years. 

Mathematics: In keeping with the current trend toward modernization of mathematics in the nation's schools, 
Wilmington has virtually completed its reorganization with the adoption of eleven new texts for the 1965-66 
school year. The last phase will be completed by September, 1966. 

^ The advanced placement program in mathematics was completed with the introduction of a class in 
calculus for seniors under the direction of Mr. Francis Kelley. 

Music: One hundred fourteen were enrolled in the elementary instrumental program (grades 4-6), 35 were 
in the junior band, and 60 were in the senior band. Only lack of staff prevented the music theory and 
appreciation groups and the choral performing groups from having substantial increases in size. This 
condition will be partially alleviated next year with the addition of another teacher to the staff. 

Physical Education: This past fall the physical education sta.ff administered a physical fitness test to 421 
high school boys. The test is similar to the one given by the United States Marine Corps. It is being used 
to determine where the youth of Wilmington High School rank with youth from other high schools throughout 
the nation. At this writing, we are waiting for the scores and results. When they axe received, they will 
be made public. 

Freshman baseball and basketball were added to the list of sports calling for participation in the 
J Merrimack Valley Conference. 

■Science: The increase in the high school enrollment is reflected in the number of science courses being 
offered. Two classes in chemistry were added this year bringing the total to six. A second class of 
physics was inaugurated, and chemistry has been made a prerequisite for biology II. 

Dr. Elene Farello was successfvil in obtaining the approval of two N. D. E. A. projects which 
enabled us to acquire additional equipment and materials. 

Social Studies: The staff has been working on curriculum revision materials, and their findings and 
recommendations shoxild be forthcoming shortly. 

The Class of 1965 : The most recent survey reveals that graduates of the Class of 1965 are engaged as

Looking Ahead : We anticipate beginning a program of automation for Business Education; establishing 
advanced placement classes in English; increasing the scope of Reading; introducing golf, soccer, indoor 
track, and wrestling as varsity sports; possibly expanding the work-study program; and planning for the 
addition to the high school plant, with a view of implementing the long range recommendations of the Visiti 
Committee regarding school plant. 

SYSTEM-WIDE ACCOMPLISHMENTS 
Important accomplishments of the total school operation during the past year are as follows: 

1. Wilmington schools gained regional recognition for their participation in the University 
of New Hampshire Art Exhibit. 

2. Substantial increases in book collections for the high school library, the intermediate 
school library, and the elementary classroom collections were possible. Total 
circulation in the high school library was 27, 615, total volumes 8, 364. 

3. The Health Department Staff administered 4, 048 eye tests, 4, 045 ear tests, and 1, 329 
general physical examinations; made 1, 157 school visits, 228 home visits, and 1, 728 
telephone contacts; continued the Tine testing program for tuberculosis for 455 grade 
one pupils; formed a senior high school future nurses club; and gave lectures and 
demonstrations relative to body care, proper attire, and the ill effects of smoking to 
pupils in the secondary schools. 

4. The summer school program reached a total of 540 for the session with courses being 
offered in arithmetic, algebra, reading, Spanish, French, English, typewriting, history, 
and driver education. 

5. Part One of a Staff Handbook was published; its purpose is to improve articulation between 
the staff, the administration, and the School Committee regarding rules, regulations, and 
policies governing the operation of the public schools. This is a prodigious task; but the 
committee of teachers, under the direction of Mr. Walter Pierce and Miss Tirzah Krey, 
Co-chairmen, is equal to it. 

6. Our children in the Special Classes profited by the purchase of new texts in arithmetic, 
spelling and reading; the acquisition of new equipment; and the start of room libraries. 

The foregoing, though statistical and routine in nature, represent solid success in the overall 
progress of the public school program. 

To conclude: The immediate future of the public schools in Wilmington will not be without its 
problems. They are not new problems, just more accentuated -- problems of population growth, 
curriculum, staffing, conditions of employment, antequated schools, ability grouping, and marking -- to 
mention a few. They will not defy solution as long as the fine spirit of cooperation between school and 
town continues as it has in the past. 

We are indebted and grateful to you, the members of the School Committee, and to the citizens of 
Wilmington for the advice and the assistance tendered to us this past year.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Wilmington: 



The School Committee of the Town of Wilmington, in accordance with Chapter 72, Section 4, of the 
General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, herewith presents its report for the year 1965. 



The membership of the Committee was as follows: 



Richard E. Keane, Chairman 
Glen E. Connolly, Vice Chairman 
George G. Robertie, Secretary 
Arthur J. Brewster 
John F. Hartnett 
Arthur V. Lynch 



The Highlights: It has been a year of substantial progress in the growth of the Wilmington Public Schools - 
progress in which all citizens can take pride. Working together with 195 members of the professional staff, 
3 nurses, 2 doctors, 10 secretaries, 22 custodians, 35 cafeteria employees, 13 traffic supervisors, 14 bus 
drivers, 1 attendance officer, and 4, 300 pupils housed in thirteen schools, the Committee: 

1) Sponsored a Head Start Program under the federal Economic Opportunity Act of 1965. 
The Wilmington program was one of the first and one of the best organized in the state. 

2) Continued to support and encourage refinements in the Work-Study Program in the 
high school. 



3) Initiated action to acquire two sites to meet future school building needs. 

4) Adopted new textbooks in mathematics, foreign languages, homemaking, industrial 
arts, and English. 

5) Approved a language seminar for the secondary English teachers. 

6) Conducted Workshops in mathematics and science for the elementary teachers. 

7) Worked closely and effectively with the Regional Vocational School District Planning 
Coinmittee to bring about favorable town meeting action on the need for a regional 
vocational-technical high school to serve the towns of Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, 
Tewksbury, and Wilmington. 

8) Approved National Defense Education Act projects in reading, social studies, science, 
and industrial arts, all geared to improving existing programs. 

9) Approved a course in calculus for high school seniors of superior ability in 
mathematics. 



26 



10) Continued the expansion of guidance services in grades seven through twelve. 

11) Completed Part One of a Staff Handbook designed to furnish the teachers, the adminis- 
trators, and the supervisors with information concerning the policies and regulations 
of the Wilmington Public Schools. 

12) Established a liberal sabbatical leave policy for teachers to pursue advanced study. 

Your attention is respectfully directed to the Annual Report of the Superintendent of Schools for the 
Idetails and the status regarding many of these accomplishments. 

The Staff: One dedicated and highly respected member of the Wilmington High School Faculty retired in 
June, after 46 years of faithful service to the Youth of Wilmington. Miss Laura N. Marland, a graduate 
of Jackson College in 1919, gave unsparingly of herself and her time so that our young people might grow in 
knowledge and in maturity. As a token of the esteem in which she was held by the students, the parents, 
and the teachers, and in appreciation of her outstanding service to the community, the Committee unani- 
mously voted that the high school library be named "The Laura N. Marland Library, " and also that a 
iportrait of her be hung in an appropriate place in the library. 

Looking ahead to the opening of the new West Intermediate School in September, 1966, and the many 
ipreparations attendant upon such an undertaking, the Committee named Robert F. Barrett, Supervising 
Principal of the Glen Road District, as the principal of the new school. The Committee will fill his former 
(position in the latter part of the 1965-66 school year. 

During the year, the Committee elected 23 teachers to tenure, appointed 23 teachers to fill staff 
vacancies, granted 1 leave of absence, and accepted 23 resignations. The latter were for the following 
reasons: 

5 Maternity 

1 Matrimony 

7 Other Teaching Positions 

7 Personal and Family Responsibilities 

2 Graduate Study 
1 Othe r 

The annual study of such personnel statistics continues to make the recruiting, the selection, and the 
induction of new teachers and the development of programs to keep veteran teachers up to date prime 
responsibilities of the School Committee and the School Administration. 

In Memoriam : A painful loss to the teaching ranks and to the young children of Wilmington was the passing 
of Mrs. Mary A. Sweet, a member of the Boutwell School Faculty for the past five years and prior to that 
a member of the staffs of other Wilmington Public Schools for seven years. Her untimely death on the last 
;day of 1965 saddened all who came to know her and to love her as a teacher, as a counselor, and as a 
ifriend. She will be sorely missed. 

The Budget : An often used factor for determining the quality of a program of education is the cost per 
ipupil. This is done on the assumption that the more a community spends for education, the higher the 
[quality of the program and vice versa. In Wilmington, for the year ending June 30, 1965, the per pupil 
cost was approximately $388. 00, slightly below average for the state. The Committee feels that although 
Ithe per pupil expenditure may be below average, our educational effectiveness is above average. This 
ifavorable condition cannot continue much longer, however, lest the below average expenditure will be 
reflecting a below average program- -particularly in the area of special services, special education, art, 
•music, and the practical arts. To meet this threat, the Committee approved a budget of $1, 718, 037. 61 
for 1966, an increase of almost $200,000 or 13% over the 1965 budget. The Cormnittee recognizes that 
tthis sum will necessarily affect the I966 tax rate, but feels strongly that to do less would seriously 



27 



compromise their responsibility to the children of Wilmington. 

In Conclusion : Schools were in session 180 days beginning September 8, 1964, and ending June 21, 1965. 
The Committee held twenty-two regular meetings and three special meetings during the year. 

The School Committee extends its grateful and sincere appreciation to the members of the School 
Department, to the members of the various town departments, and to the many parent volunteers for the 
continued support and cooperation given to the public school program throughout the year. 



REGIONAL VOCATIONAL SCHOOL DISTRIG 



REGIONAL VOCATIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT PLANNING COMMITTEE 

This committee was created by vote of the Town on October 5, 1964, in accordance with Chapter 71 of 
the General Laws. The membership of the committee was as follows: 

Mr. Richard E. Keane, Chairman (School Committee Member) 
Mr. Bernard P. McMahon, Treasurer 
Mr. Richard C. Pelletier, Secretary 

The Committee joined with comparable committees from Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, and Tewksbury 
to form a Regional Vocational School District Planning Board. 

This Regional Planning Board reviewed a study made by the Massachusetts Department of Education, 
Division of Vocational Education. It cons\ilted the School Building Assistance Commission. It conferred 
with guidance directors and counselors from each town; met with many leaders of industry and business; 
conducted surveys; and consulted bankers and bond counselors. It investigated the availability of state 
and federal financial assistance and studied the advisability of establishing a Regional School District for 
the purpose of offering vocational education. 

As a result of this planning, a formal agreement was prepared and submitted to the Board of Selectmen, 
along with a printed brochure and a recommendation that the Town join in the formation of a regional 
school district. The agreement provides for the formation of an initial school committee and election of 
Wilmington members in 1967 and 1968. It stipulates that the regional district school shall be a vocational 
high school for grades 9 through 12 with technical courses beyond the secondary school level. It outlines 
a method of apportioning capital and operating costs among the member towns, as well as preparation of 
district budgets. It also provides for amendments, admission and withdrawal of towns, and many other 
details . 

On October 25, 1965, the Special Town Meeting voted to accept the provisions of Sections 16 to 16 I of 
Chapter 7 1 of the General Laws, providing for the establishment of a regional school district together 
with the towns of Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, and Tewksbury, and the construction, maintenance and 
operation of a regional school in accordance with the provisions of the agreement. 

By November 16, 1965, all five towns had voted to form a Regional Vocational School District. By 
November 26, 1965, the initial Regional School Committee members had been appointed and on 
November 29, 1965, the new committee held its organizational meeting. 

The Wilmington Regional Vocational School District Planning Committee wishes to thank the many, many 
people who were so helpful and cooperative during the many months of this study. We sincerely appre- 
ciate the confidence and overwhelming support shown by the voters of Wilmington.

TOWN ENGINEER 



The Engineering Department personnel was increased to three men for the period between May 24, and 
the end of the year. These consisted of the Town Engineer and two students from Northeastern University, 
working under the co-operative plan. It is now possible to perform the field work whenever weather 
conditions permit, and also, during the time that it is necessary to leave one man in the office to take care 
of the demands of the public and other accumulated work. 

During the year, the headquarters of the Engineering Department were moved from the Town Hall, to the 
Highway Department office, where more suitable quarters were available. 

The survey to determine ownership and perimeter, area, etc. of a parcel of land located on the west side 
of Main Street, and the Wilmington- Woburn town line, scheduled to be used as a town dump, was 
completed. The plans were submitted to the Land Court to clear the confused ownership titles. The 
surveys to establish more co-ordinate points related to the State of Massachusetts Co-ordinate system 
were continued. This will facilitate future surveys throughout the whole town. Surveys were also made 
for Clark Street and Garden Avenue. Cost estimates were given as well as lines and grades established 
in connection with the sidewalk program. Street lines were staked out for Woodside Avenue and Robin 
Road, before the water lines were laid by th6 Water Department. Lines and grades were given for work 
performed by the Highway and School Maintenance Departments, and for Nunn Road for construction 
purposes. Street lines were established for the extension of Ainsworth Road in order to clear the area. 
Surveys were made to replace the intersection points of the street line with the property lines which were 
destroyed several years ago when Park Street was widened and the road built with Chapter 90 f\inds. 
Computations will be made during the winter months and the points replaced when weather permits. 
Roosevelt Road was also staked out for the Highway Department. The wells, right of way, and property 
lines, were located in the Barrows Well Field, for the Water Department. Measurements were taken to 
draw up the plan and to estimate the cost of building Oak Court under the Betterment Act. A start has 
been made to establish the perimeter or the boundaries of the Wildwood Cemetery, which have been in 
question for years, and to make a plan of the area for recording purposes. 

The active subdivisions include Jackson Heights #2, off Shawsheen Avenue; Forest Park, off Salern Street; 
Hathaway Acres Extension, off Gunderson Road; Esquire Estates, off Marie Drive; Alderwood Estates, 
off Woburn Street; Ferguson Subdivision, off Lowell Street; Signore Development, off Salem Street; 
DeCarolis Subdivision or the extension of Marcia Road, the industrial subdivision off Concord Street; and 
Dell Manor and Roberts Estates, off Burlington Avenue. 

Drainage conditions on Linda Road, Thurston Avenue, Middlesex Avenue near Polcaro Bros. , Kendall 
Street, at its intersection, with Aldrich Road and other locations were corrected and easements taken 
when necessary.

TREE DEPARTMENT 



TREE DEPARTMENT; 

Throughout this year as in previous years this department carried on with their never ending job of tree 
removal. Our major problem is the Dutch Elm disease. This dreaded tree disease was the direct cause 
of the Town of Wilmington losing well over 8 Elms. These trees are taken to the town tree dump and 
burned to help prevent further infection to other Elms. We trimmed low limbs, removed broken limbs 
and tree tops plus continuation of trimming branches around the fire alarm system. The emergency calls 
were above average this year; this is largely due to high winds and the current lack of rain we are 
experiencing at this time. Trees were removed in various areas of the town adjacent to schools. This 
was necessary for the preparation of sidewalks to help insure the safety of our school children. Our tree 
feeding program was continued this year; 93 trees were treated. 

This department received two new pieces of equipment this year- -a skyworker and a brush chipper. These 
two additions have added greatly to the safety and the efficiency of this department. 

Our Christmas tree on the common which has been permanently planted, was decorated by this department 
under the direct supervision of the Tree Warden. This tree was donated to the town by the late Herbert C. 
Barrows . 

MOTH DEPARTMENT : 

All shade trees were sprayed with 12% and 6% D. D. T. This spray is intended for gypsy moth, tent 
caterpillar, fall web worms, aphids, pine shoot moth, oak blights, maple leafspot and dieback. All front 
lawns were sprayed with 6% D. D. T. for Japanese beetle and milky disease. 

ELM LEAF BEETLE AND DUTCH ELM DISEASE: 

The elm leaf beetle spraying program starts in April and continues into August. This year 80 trees were 
lost due to this disease. One hundred and twenty- five samples were sent to Amherst State College for 
examination; eighty came back as infected. Employees of the State Tree Department and the Town of 
Wilmington Highway Department assisted in the removal and burning of these diseased trees. The State 
furnished men, trucks and equipment for three weeks at no cost to the town. Our tree replacement 
program was continued. Two hundred trees were planted throughout the town. All stumps were removed 
whe reeve r practicable to prevent road and pedestrian hazards. 

MOSQUITOES: 

Homes, swamps and bog areas were sprayed again this year which is the usual practice of your tree 
department. I would like to have it known at this time, that the members of your Tree Department have 
taken a written examination and passed same. This examination is issued by the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Pesticide Board. The members of this department have 
been licensed to apply pesticides. This examination is regarded as an educational program designed to 
present certain facts, concepts and attitudes to those who use pesticides. Knowledge and adherence to 
these principles will enable us who use pesticides to employ them with safety to ourselves and the general 
public . 



30 



TOWN FOREST: 



The town forest has been cleared of underbrush, dead trees have been removed and dangerous linabs have 
been cut. It was necessary to remove certain trees to make way for the town's new ski slope and toboggan 
slide. Over three hundred Norway Spruce seedlings were planted throughout the area. The road around 
the forest has been cleared. 

POISON IVY : 

All emergency calls for poison ivy were answered as soon as possible and the immediate trouble spot was 
sprayed. Poison Ivy was very prevalent this year. Brush killer was sprayed on stone walls, streets and 
around homes whereever poison ivy was found. 



RECREATION COMMISSION 



On behalf of the Recreation Commission, I hereby submit the annual report for 1965. 

The rapid growth of this town has been reflected in the ever increasing numbers taking part in recreation 
for all ages. The Town Beach and the Summer Playgrounds especially indicate this trend as supported by 
statistics given by program records as follows:

Improvements have been realized at three different locations. The ski area at the town park; the new 
bathhouse at the Town Beach; and the inclusion of a lighting system for the tennis courts, basketball, and 
skating rink at the high school area. 

Although it was estimated that more than 400 persons have used the ski area at one time, official data is 
not available at this time. However, future programs of skiing, tobogganning, and coasting will be 
available for your information. 

We are grateful to the School Committee, the Highway Department, and the Police Department for their 
cooperation in making a worthwhile program possible.

Note the peak number in 1955. The years immediately following 1955 show the effect of the more 
stringent local zoning by-laws effective December 16, 1955. (John "Bob" Evans, who retired this year, 
was the last of the Planning Board members who "pushed" that rezoning. ) 

By Chapter 435, Acts 1961, the Legislature amended Ch. 40A GL (sec. 5A & 7A) so that notwithstanding 
the provisions of a zoning by-law in such town, a lot may be built upon for residential use provided such 
lot had an area of 5, 000 square feet and a frontage of 50 feet and conformed with certain other require- 
ments spelled out in Ch. 435. 

There are now before the Legislature, bills further "liberalizing" zoning restrictions statewide; no doubt 
action on it will be in accordance with the will of the voters as made known to the Legislators. 



PERMANENT BUILDING COMMITTEE 



In compliance with the Town's vote authorizing the committee to proceed, and with the professional 
advice of superintendent Shea and its architectural consultant, the Permanent Building Committee has 
undertaken the designing, planning, constructing and equipping of the West Intermediate School which is 
scheduled for occupancy in September of 1966. 

In conjunction with the Board of Library Trustees, a program planning consultant and an architectural 
consultant, the committee is presently pursuing the study of design and cost estimates of a new municipal 
library with the results of this study to be submitted to the voters at the annual town meeting in March of 
1966. 

Consistent with its duties, the committee has recommended and has had accepted by the voters, two 
future school sites, one in the Shawsheen Avenue area and one in the Whitefield School area. Several 
other sites are presently under consideration to meet additional school accommodation requirements. 

The committee is pleased to inform the Town that although other communities have received reduced 
percentages of reimbursements on school construction, Wilmington will continue to receive fifty per cent 
of the principal cost of construction. It is also most gratifying for the committee to cooperate with the 
T-own Treasurer in investing the school bond issue money, thus helping to reduce some of the Town's 
expense s . 

At this time, the committee extends its most sincere appreciation to all of the town's officials, boards 
and committees for the cooperation shown during the past year.

PLANNING BOARD 



The progressive theme of government in the Town of Wilmington, during recent years, has developed an 
increasing complexity to its Boards, Committees and Commissions. The adoption of the provisions of 
Chapter 41, General Laws, Section 81-A through 8I-GG has made the year 1965 one of the most active for 
the Planning Board. The scope and variety of the Town's responsibilities in sub-divisions pertaining to 
drainage, streets and circulation has taxed much of available time of the board members. 

Keeping pace with the residential and industrial growth of the community, the areas that have demanded 
the greatest attention of the board, during 1965, are as follows: 



Subdivisions: 



The following subdivisions, reviewed and evaluated to current subdivision control regulations, have come 
under consideration of the Planning Board in the past year: 



Forest Park 
Jackson Heights No. 2 
Hathaway Acres No. 2 
Esquire Estates 
Presidential Heights 
Alderwood Estates 
Dell Manor 
Elmwood Village 
Roberts Estates 
Pinewood Subdivision 
Maple Manor 
DeCarolis Subdivision

Sydney Rosenthal 
Vokey & Parsons 
Weston Realty 
NES Construction 
Angellini Bros. 
Tonello Bros . 



Numerous other plans appeared before the Board for approval of individual lots. 



Zoning: 

Each Town Meeting brings forth a new set of suggested zoning changes. Each of these changes requires 
advertising and is subsequently given a public hearing. The Planning Board must then analyze and 
evaluate the results of the hearing in order to prepare a report for the Town Meeting. 

The integrated planning concept of the Board necessitates careful and due consideration of existing land 
use, conservation of land and building values, traffic, drainage, street layout, water mains, easements 
and numerous other facets that establish an appropriate use of the land. 

Undoubtedly, the most important zoning event of the year was a proposed industrial subdivision by Carl 
Realty, which required a rezoning of 180 acres of residential land in the Concord Street (Route 93) area. 
The completion of building in this area could add an approximate $30, 000, 000 to the Town's tax base. 



34 



As an effort to safeguard future land use values in the town, it was proposed that land in the Route 125 
area be rezoned from industrial to rural. However, it was discovered during the public hearing that 
industrial development is contemplated and the proposal was passed over to await further developments. 

Planning: 

The regular bi-monthly meetings of the Planning Board have proven inadequate to meet the pressing 
demands imposed by subdividers, builders and numerous organizations and individuals that require the 
services of the board. Weekly meetings have been initiated in order that work could be accomplished in 
planning studies. Industry in Wilmington recognized the Planning Board's problems and donated $8,000 
to the Board. This was matched by an equal amount from the people of the community. 

To keep pace with the growth of the community and the increasing complexity in the overall Planning 
Board functions, the Board is considering the streamlining and modernization of its operating policies 
and procedures. Tentative plans have been discussed and are presently being implemented for: 

1. Employment of a professional consultant to assist in routine reviews and studies 
utilizing the funds donated by industry and matched by the townspeople. Projects 
already completed or underway are as follows: 

a. Zoning By-Law and Map- -updated 

b. Suggested revision of off-street parking regulation for the Zoning By-Law 

c. Driveway By-Law ordinance 

d. Subdivision regulation- -revised 

e. Addition of Industrial subdivision regulation 

f. Town base map--revised and updated 

g. Revised specifications to subdivision rules and regulations 

2. Closer and increased utilization of the Town Engineer and his office, in the inspection 
of subdivision development and a methodical preview of the plans and adherence to the 
zoning by-laws of subdivision plats: 

3. The adoption of subcommittees to permit a division of work load. 

4. Town management has been solicited to provide more efficient conditions in the Planning 
Board's Meeting Room by providing a desk, file cabinets and other necessary equipment. 

Plans for the future evolve from the fact that the Planning Board has recognized the need for a revised 
General Plan. Predictions of the 1957 General Plan are now proving fallacious in many areas. Rail- 
roads predicted to be here to stay no longer operate to predicted schedule. The design of a bedroom 

community to house the workers and employees of Boston industry has been shattered by the influx of 
Wilmington industrial and commercial plazas. Predicted population growth was very conservatively 
estimated. Traffic has increased and patterns have changed. The fundamental and critical need for a 
comprehensive review has been recognized by the Planning Board. Its objectives for the next calendar 
year include as a prelude to form\ilating a General Plan some basic planning studies. These are: 

1. Existing land use 

2. Population analysis and projections 

3. Economic development 

4. Establishment of additional planning districts 

5. Major street and transportation plan 

6. Recreation areas 

7. Public building and appearance plan 

8. Capital improvement program 



35 



The cooperation of many involved in community affairs is necessary to make the future growth of our 
community compatible to the interests of our property holders and taxpayers. In an effort to be repre- 
sentative of the Town, the Board welcomes all suggestions and recommendations from the people of 
Wilmington and ask for their support in order to provide a healthful, progressive and attractive community. 



TOWN COLLECTOR 



In past years, much of my report has been duplicated in the report of the Town Accountant. I am, there- 
fore, showing just a few figures, as a comparison, which may be of interest to the general public.

BOARD OF REGISTRARS 



In accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3, of the Town By-Laws, meetings of the Board of Registrars are 
held on the second Monday of each month for the registration of voters and the conduct of business. Under 
Chapter 626 of the acts of 1958, this meeting is open to the public and the press and is so posted in the 
Town Hall. 

The Board also holds many extra meetings for the purpose of certifying names on nomination papers and 
warrant articles. There were three (3) all-day registration periods this year. 

In March Miss Phyllis M. O'Leary advised the Selectmen that she would be unable to continue her work on 
this committee due to business commitments. Mrs. Margaret Imbimbo was appointed to fill this vacancy 
and was sworn to the faithful performance of her duties on March Z9, 1965. 

On August 13, 1965, Mrs. Margaret A. Wagstaff was appointed Assistant Town Clerk, (for an indefinite 
period) and therefor by virtue of her office has the right to register voters and all other related work for 
the Board of Registrars. 

Women married prior to January 1 must re-.register under their marriage name. Naturalized citizens 
must have their naturalization papers with them when registering. 

New residents are requested to notify the Board of Registrars of the date which they take residence in 
the town. Any change of address within the town during the year should be brought to the attention of the 
Board so that your name will not be removed from the voting list inadvertently. 

In order to keep the voting list as up-to-date as possible, the Board annually compares the voting list 
with the yearly census. If a voter's name does not appear in the census, it is subject to removal from 
the voting register.

BOARD OF PUBLIC WELFARE 



The Wilmington Board of Public Welfare respectfully submits its Annual Report for the year 1965. The 
Board consists of Mr. Maurice O'Neil, Chairman of the Board, Miss Florence Balkus and Mrs. Anna Lc 
as members of the Board. 

The four full time employees of the Board are Walter F. Coleman, the Director of Public Assistance, 
who also serves as secretary to the Board, Miss Josephine Kane and Mrs. Dorothy Staffier, the Social 
Workers and Mrs. Irene Manning is the Clerk-Typist. All employees of the Welfare Board are hired 
under the Merit System and have Civil Service status, which is required under the law. 

The five categories of assistance under the supervision of the Board of Public Welfare are: General 
Relief, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Disability Assistance, Old Age Assistance, and 
Medical Assistance for the Aged. The last four categori-es come under the Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare and are reimbursed by the Federal and State governments for the greater part of 
the aid rendered. General Relief is supported jointly by the State and Local governments with the Town 
assuming the greater share. 

The combined efforts of the Federal, State and Local governments provide assistance to families and 
individuals who cannot support themselves. 

Strong emphasis now stems from the Federal Government for increased social services to rehabilitate 
dependent persons and families. It has become increasingly evident that money alone is not enough to 
meet the serious social arid economic problems of those in need. We must try to prevent the succeeding] 
generation from inheriting the poverty of their parents, and through this expansion of social services 
help dependent people help themselves. Present-day programs of assistance must also be carried out ii 
such a way as to strengthen family life, since the Community welfare is closely related to the social and 
economic status of its families. 

It appears, at this time, that in a relatively few years, the State Department of Public Welfare will take i 
over -the full cost of all public assistance programs after Federal grants, plus the fiill supervision of 
these programs. This is the result of a study made by a National Survey Team which recently recomme 
ed full State participation and supervision. 

We, as workers in Public Assistance, believe very strongly in local administration, for many reasons. 
To name a few: the close contact we have with our clients, the easy accessibility of our office to our 
clients if they are in need of advice or counseling, and the availability of the Director 24 hours a day if 
an emergency arises. 

These services obviously will not prevail, if the local office is closed and embraced in a regional office. 

Members of the Welfare Board again attended various conferences and workshops during 1965 for 
indoctrination on new laws, rules and policies affecting Welfare programs. Attendance at some of these 
conferences and workshops is mandatory by the State Department of Public Welfare to insure local 
communities of State and Federal funds. 



44 



I 



OLD AGE ASSISTANCE 



This category is a Federally-sponsored, State plan, administered by law through the local Boards of 
^ublic Welfare. The law requires local Boards to aid aged persons, sixty-five and over, who are in need 
md who have resided in Massachusetts for one year prior to application. Need is determined by applying 
)udgetary standards set up by the State Department of Public Welfare. Some other requirements are 
)ersonal property such as cash, savings bonds, etc. , not to exceed $500. Liens are placed on property if 
he applicant has an interest in such property. 

During the past year the laws which most affected OAA was an increase in Leisure Time Activity from 
i5. 50 to $11. 50 monthly for this budget item. Another change in OAA was the disregard of earned income 
)f approximately $60. 00 monthly over and above their budgetary needs. 

ihe Federal Government reimburses local Boards $54. 00 per month for each case aided. The State pays 
wo-thirds of the balance and the remainder is paid by the local community. 

This Board, in its budget request, does not include the Federal share, as this amount, by law, is set up 
m a separate account and can be used only by the Board of Public Welfare for the Old Age Assistance 
urogram. The Board, in its budget request, must raise the State and Town's share. ■ The State's pay- 
nents are returned directly to the Town's Excess and Deficiency account and is used by the Town. The 
assessors, however, anticipate this reimbursement based on the prior year's returns, and it does not 
adversely affect the tax rate. 

During the year 1965, 78 cases were aided under this program at a total cost of $75, 675. 13. 

AID TO FAMILIES WITH DEPENDENT CHILDREN 

\.id to Families with Dependent Children is another Federally-sponsored category administered by law 
hrough the local Boards of Public Welfare to aid children that are deprived of parental support through 
lesertion, mutual or legal separation, divorce, incarceration, death, disability, or unemployment of the 
>arent. 

During the year the law which most affected AFDC was the disregard of earned net income in the amount of 
El 5. 00 weekly, which the parent could keep in addition to the full budgetary needs of the family. 

Che Federal reimbursement on this program is $20. 50 per person, State reimbursement is one-third of 
he total expenditure. The local community pays the balance for the aid rendered. The Board does not 
include the Federal share in its budget request. The Town must raise the State share and the local share, 
lecause the State's share is returned to the Town's Excess and Deficiency fund. There is no settlement 
'equired on this program. However, the children must have resided in the Commonwealth for one year 
iirior to application. 

During 1965 members of this Agency appeared in various Courts, a total of 59 times and were 98 per cent 
uccessful in all these appearances against delinquent fathers in our efforts to seek guilty judgments for 
ion-support and subsequent support orders for their families. Receipts from this source amounted to 
112, 8 19. 88 for 1965, an increase of 6 per cent over 1964. During 1965, 50 families were aided under 
his category in Wilmington with a total expenditure of $65, 643. 12. 

DISABILITY ASSISTANCE 

Disability Assistance is another Federally-sponsored State plan administered by law by the local Boards 
if Public Welfare. It requires the local Boards to aid persons who have been declared permanently and 

lotally disabled by the Medical Review Team of the State Department of Public Welfare and who are in 
eed. Need is determined by budgetary standards set by the Department of Public Welfare. The 

federal reimbursement for money expended in this category is $46. 50 a month per case, and the Town's 



45 



share is 25 per cent of the total cost each month. The balance is reimbursed by the State Department oi 
Public Welfare. The same manner of financing is used as in Old Age Assistance and Aid to Families wi 
Dependent Children. 

During the year 1965, 21 cases were aided on this category. Total expenditure for 1965 was 
$17, 644. 10. 

MEDICAL ASSISTANCE FOR THE AGED 

Medical Assistance for the Aged is also a Federally-sponsored State plan administered by law by the loci 
Boards of Public Welfare. This program was born in I960 when changes made under the Social Security 
Act established this category under the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare. The bill, as passe< 
at that level, recognized a need for medical care for aged persons. It, as in other Federal and State 
programs, requires local Boards to aid persons over 65, who are medically indigent and reside in the 
Commonwealth. No settlement is required under this category. 

Under Chapter 781 of the Acts of I960 the other requirements briefly are as follows: Aged persons 65 o 
over, who reside in the Commonwealth, are entitled to medical assistance, provided they do not have ar 
income, if single, of more than $150. 00 a month, or if married, $225. 00 a month, and providing furthe 
that if single they do not have bank deposits, securities, cash on hand and/or similar assets amounting 1 
more than $2, 000, or if married, more than $3, 000. Persons eligible for this form of assistance shall 
be entitled to part or all of the cost of (1) in-patient hospital ward care; (2) public medical institution 
services; (3) nursing home care; (4) physician's services; (5) out-patient or clinical services; (6) nursin 
services; (7) physical therapy and related services; (8) dental services; (9) home health care services; 
(10) laboratory and x-ray services; (11) prescribed drugs, eye glasses, dentures and other prosthetic 
devices; (12) diagnostic screening and preventive services; (13) any other care or remedial care in 
accordance with the Department of Public Welfare Care Plan. 

Reimbursement for care under this program is 50 per cent of all monies expended by the Federal 
Government, two thirds of the balance by the State, the remaining one-third balance to be assumed by 
the local community. 

During the year 1965, 99 cases were aided on this program. Total expenditure for the year 1965 was 
$81, 374. 11. 

GENERAL RELIEF 

This program requires local Boards to meet the community's statutory obligation to relieve a person ir 
need. The decisions on who shall be aided and the amount given is left entirely to the local Board's 
discretion. Unlike the Federal programs where the final decision rests with the State through an appea 
process, the local Board makes the final decision. The local Boards, through their policies and 
decisions invariably attempt to reflect community thinking. 

The State Department reimburses local communities for 20 per cent of the cost of General Relief. 
There is no settlement requirement on this program. 

During the year 1965, 35 cases were aided under this category with a total expenditure of $10, 181. 99. 

ADMINISTRATION 

The reimbursement formula is as follows: For cases which require no special services and on all othe; 
Administration costs are 50 per cent by the Federal Government, 25 per cent by the State and the 
remaining 25 per cent to be paid by the local community. For cases that require special services, we 
receive an extra reimbursement for salaries and travel costs as follows: 75 per cent by the Federal 
Government, 12 1/2 per cent by the State and the remaining 12 1/2 per cent is paid by the local 



46 



i 

community. Administration expenses applied to General Relief are not reimbursable, but these costs 
were only a small fraction of the total expenditure. 

Administration costs cover all expenditures by the Board to administer the five programs under its 
jurisdiction; namely, Old Age Assistance, Medical Assistance for the. Aged, Disability Assistance, Aid 
to Families with Dependent Children and General Relief. Federal funds, as in other programs, are 
restricted by law for the sole use of administration. The State's share is returned to the Excess and 
Deficiency Fund and is used by the Town for any purpose. 

COMMENTS 

I Public Welfare Administration has been challenged at all levels this past year. During this evaluation 
process our whole structure is being subjected to scrutiny and alterations. We cannot be complacent, 
nor can we be oblivious to these changes. 

In the event that the final decision is State administration, we are hopeful that it will not be political in 
nature, nor of a highly centralized bureaucratic power. 

The State might also learn much from the policies and philosophy of local administration and hopefully 
make this a part of the new structure. 

!This report was prepared for the local Board of Public Welfare by its Director of Public Assistance, 
Walter F. Coleman. 



VETERANS' AGENT 



!The Wilmington Veterans' Agent respectfully submits his Annual Report for the year 1965. James F. 
:Banda, Veterans' Agent and Mrs. Vera F. Mills, Secretary. 

It is governed by the General Laws, Chapter 115 with strict compliance to this Chapter, rules and 
policies set forth which governs the disbursement of aid. 

/Veterans' Services are for the benefit of the needy Veteran and his immediate family who have been 
.subjected to unforeseen needs and final approval comes from Boston. Serving the year 1965, the 
/Veterans' Services expended $65,000. There was an increase in the number of cases handled, two 
increases in the budget from Boston and several increases in hospital rates and medical care. This year 
iwe had three unexpected hospital bills of over $2, 000 each. Of the amount expended, $33, 000 was for 
laid, $22, 000 for hospitals and $10, 000 for doctors, dental and miscellaneous expenses. 

[The Town of Wilmington receives 50 per cent reimbursement from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 
[The sum expended this year will remain approximately the same provided there are no increases.

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 



This is the second Annual Report of the Commission and we have come a long way now that we are almost 
two years old. We are now at full strength with seven very active members. The Commission is made 
up of non-paid, interested citizens appointed by the Selectmen and Town Manager. We are charged with 
the responsibility of safeguarding, maintaining, and improving the community's natural resources. To 
accomplish our objectives we intend to solicit the aid of interested individuals and groups. 

1. The Commission has expended a major effort on a Study of the feasibility of Flood Plain 
Zoning by-laws for the retention of absorption or "sponge" areas to slow run-off in 
Spring thaws or heavy storms. We have done detailed mapping, slide and motion picture 
work on the Town's brooks, streams and swamps. This is a continuing project with the 
Commission for 1966 since it requires great detail. 

2. We have been very active in attempts to secure open spaces in the major sub-divisions of the 
town before the areas are completely built-up. The Commission has worked closely with the 
Selectmen, Town Manager, Planning Board and the Park and Recreation Commission in this 
project and expects favorable results early in 1966. 

3. During the year, the Commission acquired a fisherman's access area along the Shawsheen 
River. Recently, with the assistance of two Boy Scout troops, the Commission cleared the 
area of fallen limbs, dead trees, bottles and cans. 

4. We completed a Land Use Study Questionnaire of the Ipswich River Watershed for the Division , 
of Conservation Services of the Department of Natural Resources. Follow-up has consisted of ■ 
attendance at four meetings this year. 

5. Initiated and completed a Spring Reforestation Program in which 2, 000 Norway Spruce seedling 
were planted at the Chestnut Street Wellfield. , 

6. We presented a display on good conservation practices prior to and at the March Town Election 
and Town Meeting and distributed over 1,000 reprints of the Reader's Digest reprint 
"Conservation is Everybody's Battle. " 

7. The increased activity of the Commission required us in May to go from one meeting to two 
meetings per month, and at years end we find we could still use more meeting time each month 

8. The Commission sponsored two boys to the Massachusetts Junior Conservation Camp. The 
boys learned about fisheries and water conservation, soil conservation and forestry and wild- 
life management; plus hunting, fishing and boating tips and safety rules. 

9. We investigated the feasibility of a detailed soil survey for Wilmington and found this wotild be 
of great value for school site selection, residential and industrial building, and water run-off 
characteristics. It was learned that this survey could be done on a cost-sharing basis under 
Federal 701 Funds if included in a new Planning Board Master Plan. We intend to follow this 
procedure up as Wilmington bears only one -sixth of the cost if the survey is done in this 
manner. 



48 



10. We have nearly completed an index of all town-owned, hostorical and open space areas within 
the town. The areas are on a Master Map of the town and are being transferred to assessing- 
type maps for finer detail. 

11. The Commission was involved in the discussion and hearings on the commercial beach at 
Silver Lake and spent much effort on this because of the possibilities of violations of State 
Statutes. 



12. We have worked with the Commissions from nearby towns on common interest items such as 
pollution and water needs along the Shawsheen and Ipswich Rivers. Other Commissions 
contacted include Bedford, Topsfield, Lynnfield and Billerica. 

13. The Fall Reforestation Program saw 3, 000 Norway Spruce, 1, 000 Red Pine and 100 Arborvitae 
seedlings planted at the Chestnut Street and Brown's Crossing well fields and the Town Park 
fall field and well field areas. These plantings were done with the cooperation of Town Boy 
Scout Troops and the Water Department. 

14. The Commission found this year that there is much field work to be done and in 1966 will solicit 
assistance from the four Boy Scout troops and, if possible, start a Volunteers Group from 
interested townspeople who would like to be helpful in community improvement and beautifica- 
tion.

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 



As in the past, all regular routine work was completed before my regular highway maintenance and : 
construction began, such as, street sweeping, cleaning catch basins and culverts, erection of street as 
traffic signs, fence repairing, brush cutting, repairing entrances to driveways damaged due to laying 
pipe for drainage, and street patching. Much of this work was done in conjunction with my expense 
account and Chapter 81 funds. 600 feet of snow fence was erected at the request of the Town Manager > 
the Woburn Street bridge over Route 93, for the protection of the school children. 

DRAINAGE: 

1, 100 feet of 12 inch pipe layed on High Street and Linda Road and 7 catch basins constructed. 300 feel 
of 12 inch pipe layed and 3 catch basins constructed on Middlesex Avenue at North Wilmington railroad 
tracks, in front of Mytron's, part of which was paid from the 1964 drainage account and the balance frc 
Ifny 1965 expense account. Drainage problem on Kendall Street solved. 

JBETTERMENT STREETS: 

All betterment streets carried over from 1964 completed and the Board of Selectmen, Town Accountani 
and Board of Assessors so notified. Also Nunn Road accepted in 1965 for betterments, completed and 
the Board of Selectmen, Town Accountant, and Board of Assessors so notified. 

SIDEWALK PROGRAM: 

Section from St. Thomas Church along Middlesex Avenue to Clark Street and from Church Street along 
Clark Stteet to Middlesex Avenue, plus curbing was constructed. Pedway from Brattle Street to the 
Glen Road School, excavated and graveled. All loam and subsoil hauled to the cemetery. Pedway will 
be surfaced with hot top early in 1966. Sidewalk along Clark Street to Main Street held up because 
land takings and easements were not processed. All drainage and catch basins were installed for a 40 
foot street. Later the Town Engineer found a plan showing a 33 foot street, thereby creating a conditic 
that required land taking and easements. Under the existing conditions a sidewalk cannot be built withe 
building it on private property. At this writing we are in the process of clearing up the situation. Thi; 
was the number one project in the program, and required the bulk of the appropriation because the stre 
and culvert widening was included. The street was left unfinished because I did not want to build it, an 
then tear it up again to make any changes because of the location of the sidewalk. Under the above 
circumstances, holding up the sidewalk program was the only logical thing to do. 

CHAPTER 90 MAINTENANCE: 

$4, 500 spent to hot top Middlesex Avenue from the North Wilmington Station to 150 feet beyond Federal 
Hill. 

CHAPTER 90 CONSTRUCTION: 

Ballardvale Street, 1964 Contract. Six headwalks constructed and about 300 feet of stonewall layed. A 
boulders and excess dirt removed from shoulders, 200 feet of ditch excavated and spread out where 
needed. 

50 



IRAPTER 8 1 in conjunction with part of my expense account: 



11 streets cleared of brush, put through a chipper and hauled away. All catch basins and culverts 
eaned. All streets swept with a power sweeper. Sweepings picked up with front end loader, dumped 
.to trucks and hauled away. Shoulders cut back and dirt picked up on many streets before surface treat- 
■g- 

The following streets were surface treated: 

Park Street sealed with heavy asphalt, covered with stone, rolled. Oakdale Road, 600 feet, 
Judith Road, Sprucewood Road, Birchwood Road, and Shady Lane Drive. 

The following streets were surface treated with a mix in place, consisting of pea gravel 
and heavy asphalt: 

Ayotte Street, Crest Avenue, Belmont Avenue, State Street, Fairview Avenue, Glen Road, 
Gunderson Road, Ledgewpod Road, Oak Street, Oakdale Road, 180 feet, Pinewood Road, 
Sewall Road, Strout Avenue, West Street, Truman Road, Dayton Road, Chase Road, 
Gunderson Road, Pillings Road, High Street, Nickerson Avenue and one mile of Ballardvale 
Street. 

OWN PARK SKI TOW AREA Special appropriation $3, 000 : 

ne new pole set, one pole reset. One new ski slope constructed. Boulders, trees and stumps removed, 
lumps and debris hauled to pond hole in back of High School. Two ski slopes regraded, and slope for 
mall children with sleds graded and all obstruction that might cause injury removed. 600 feet of snow 
mce erected to protect and control the various slides. 100 feet of fence erected to prevent the children 
:om sliding onto Main Street. Three signs erected, reading "For Wilmington Residents Only. " 

low and Ice removal still remains a major and expensive problem. Each year the demands made of the 
epartment increase, but with our modern equipment, we have managed to keep up with it. 

. closing, I am taking this opportunity to thank all various departments for their cooperation and help, 
reat or small, and the Town Manager and Board of Selectmen in helping the Department solve some of 
s problems. 

SARAH D. J. CARTER LECTURE FUND 



lie Carter Lecture Committee did not present a program in 1965. Because our funds are limited and the 
jst of good programs constantly increases, the Committee feels that in order to maintain the high stand- 
:d of program presented in the past, emphasis should be placed on quality rather than quantity of pro- 
iams . 

is interesting to note that when the fund was established, it provided as many as six programs a year-- 
cluding such famous names of Lowell Thomas! Of course, in those days, there was not the competition 
t television and radio. 

lie Committee looks forward to Saturday evening, March Z6th when John Roberts will return with his 
itest film "Norway and the Modern Vikings. " These programs are offered without charge to the 
-sidents of Wilmington and their families at the Herbert C. Barrows Auditorium. Program time is 
15.

PUBLIC LIBRARY 



BOARD OF LIBRARY TRUSTEES 

During 1965 the efforts of the Trustees were concentrated on the development of plans for a new library. 
In March we met with the Town Manager, Mr. Bouchard, and members of the Permanent Building 
Committee to set up a procedure for the preparation of building plans to be presented to a Special Town 
Meeting in October. 

A sub-committee composed of members of the Board of Library Trustees and of the Permanent Building 
Committee interviewed four professional library building consiiltants and selected Mr. Philip J. McNiff, 
who was at that time Associate Librarian of the Harvard College Library and who has since been appoint© 
Director of the Boston Public Library. Mr. McNiff agreed to prepare a "program statement" which ^ 
would outline appropriate library objectives for the Town, and to work with the Trustees, the Permanent * 
Building Committee and the architect in planning a building which would accommodate the objectives. ' 

Although the selection of the architect was the responsibility of the Permanent Building Committee, the 
Library Trustees were invited to be present when the various architects were interviewed and to submit 
their recommencfetions . The architects recommended by the Trustees were Richmond and Goldberg, 
Kilham, Hopkins, Greeley and Brodie, Carl Koch, and Alderman and MacNeish, in that order. The 
architect chosen by the Permanent Building Committee was Mr. John Guarino. 

In his program statement Mr. McNiff said that the building should be designed to provide sufficient space 
for the library needs of the Town for a period of twenty years. Based on an estimated popiolation of 
30,000 in 1985, he recommended a building of approximately 21,000 square feet. 

r 

Final plans for a colonial style building containing approximately 28,000 square feet were approved by 

the Trustees in September. The total estimated cost, including furnishings, was $886,400. ' 

An application was made to the Board of Library Commissioners of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, - 
pursuant to Title II of the Library Services and Construction Act, for federal funds available to the State 
in 1966 for the construction of public library facilities. In view of the amounts of the grants made this 
year, it was estimated that we might receive as much as 25 per cent of the total cost. ^ 

The Trustees met with the Finance Committee and presented the building plans for their consideration. 
It was the opinion of that Committee that the cost was too great and that the building was too large. 
Because of the fact that the Finance Committee disapproved it, the article relating to the construction of 
a new library was tabled at the Special Town Meeting held on October 25, 1965. This action made our 
application for federal funds invalid. 

The Trustees have since met with members of the Finance Committee, the Permanent Building Committ© 
Mr. McNiff and Mr. Guarino with the objective of developing new plans for presentation to the Annual 
Town Meeting in 1966. 

The services provided by the Library continued to increase in 1965. The registration of 759 new 
borrowers brought the total number up to approximately 6750. Circulation figures reached a new high of 
68, 900. 



56 



This year it was necessary to add a new ten-drawer section to the reference catalog. 



The Trustees wish to thank the Wilmington Women 



's Club for their efforts on behalf of the Library. 



To the Library Staff we express our sincere gratitude for their splendid cooperation.

With the increase in the number of commuting college students, there are many demands on the reference 
department, and we have borrowed many books on inter-library loan to augment our material. The 
[periodicals are much in use for class assignments. Lack of space greatly curtails the facilities which 
\we might otherwise provide. In order to make room for the new books, some of the older, less used 
(books have been put in storage until such time as more space is available. 

;As usual, the story hour registration was so large that we could not accommodate them all. Our 
'volunteer story tellers carry on this program magnificently. We wish to thank Mrs. McKie, Mrs. 
"Tompkins, Mrs. Hoescher and Mrs. Motschman who make this undertaking such a success. 

Iln November a group from Grade II of the Woburn Street School visited the library with their teacher, 
(Miss Marinel, and learned about library borrowers. Groups of this sort are always welcome. 

lln late October the Literature Committee of the Women's Club again conducted a booksale, the proceeds 
cof which will be used for the benefit of the library. 

>We have book deposits in the Whitefield, Mildred Rogers, Boutwell and Wildwood Schools for the use of 
the students and are preparing a collection for the Woburn Street School. The Glen Road School is 
^served by the bookmobile and pupils in the Swain and Center Schools come to the library during recess 
)and lunch hour. Walker School pupils live near enough to come to the library. 

■Since January 1st, the library has been open to the public 58 hours a week. The hours are Monday 
through Friday from 10:00 a. m. to 9:00 p. m. , Saturdays 2:00 to 5:00 p. m. 



herewith submit my Annual Report as Constable for the year ending 1965. I have postedNotices and 
'arrants for the Annual Town Meeting and Special Town Meetings all in accordance with the By-laws of 
le Town of Wilmington. I have also served and posted notices for other Town Officials and Departments.

The cooperation of water users was the principal factor in avoiding water restrictions during the second 
year of drought when the capacities of the well field were fully extended. 

Pending the results of further tests to reduce the iron content at the Town Park well, the State Departmen 
of Public Health granted the Water Department permission to install a pump on an emergency basis. Witl 
the other well fields at low levels the installation of this pump in October was of material assistance 
during an unusually dry fall. 

At the annual March town meeting the Town appropriated funds for the acquisition of land, wells, pump- 
ing stations and connecting water mains at three new sites. The land has been acquired and contracts 
made for construction and equipment. It is expected that the first station will be ready off Shawsheen 
Avenue in early summer, 1966. Stations near Butters Row and Aldrich Road should be ready soon 
thereafter. It is anticipated that these new stations will add about 2, 000, 000 gallons per day capacity to 
the system. 

The present rate of growth indicates planning must continue for the addition of a station at the site near 
Salem Street in three to four years.

follows: "It is a major revision of the existing Building By-Law, It retains the best 
parts of the existing By-Law and has been revised and updated in the areas that were weak.

ARTICLE 3, To see if the Town will vote to transfer from available funds or from other 
existing balances and appropriate an amount of money to pay for an expert appraisal of the 
taxable real estate of the entire Town by an outside disinterested firm, and authorize the 
Town Manager and the Board of Assessors to make a contract or contracts for such appraisal, 
or take any other action in relation thereto. On request of the Board of Selectmen, 

Motion by Mr, Lloyd C, Bender, III that the Town Manager and the Board of Assessors be and 
are hereby authorized to enter into a contract or contracts for a period not exceeding 
three years for an expert appraisal of the taxable real estate of the entire town by an 
outside disinterested finn, for a sum not to exceed $36,000,00 and that the sixm of $6,000,00 
is hereby appropr^iated to cover payments on such contract or contracts for the current year, 
and to raise such appropriation that $3,000,00 be transferred from Account #9l|.7 entitled 
"Appraisals"; $^00, 00 from Account #1^0 entitled "Assessors Outlay"; and $2,500,00 from 
Account #914.1 entitled "Blue Cross - Blue Shield." 

The Finance Committee recommends approval of the Town entering into a contract, not to 
exceed three years, and not to exceed $36,000 in total cost for the purpose of reappraising 
the taxable property of the Town, It is further recommended that to finance the current 
year's payment of $6,000, that the sum of $3,000 be transferred from Account #9i4.7 
(Appraisals); $500 from Account #150 (Assessors' Outlay); and $2,500 from account #9l4.1 
(Blue Cross-Blue Shield), Due to the fact that the Town now finds itself in the situation 
of having its Principal Assessor resign at a time when reappraisal has been only partially 
completed, we feel that it is to the advantage of the Town to accomplish complete reappraisal 
of the entire Town before the 1966 tax rate is set, 

Mr, Henneberger, Town Manager, introduced, the new Principal Assessor, Mr, Anthony Krzeminski, 
to the meeting, Mr, Henneberger talked on the need for reappraisal, A lengthy discussion

103 



ARTICLE 7. (continued) 

Motion by Mr. Joseph F, Courtney that the Town vote to amend the Zoning By-Law and Map by 
changing from Single Residence A District to Industrial District the following described 
parcel of land: Beginning at a point on the northerly side of Concord Street at the inter- 
section of Concord Street and the North Reading Town Line; thence running in a westerly 
direction along the northerly side of Concord Street to a point at the intersection of 
Concord Street and the easterly side of the right-of-way of Interstate Route #93» thence 
running in a northerly direction along the easterly side of the right-of-way of Interstate 
Route #93 a distance of sixteen hundred and fifteen (1,615) feet more or less to a point; 
thence running in an easterly direction along the right-of-way of Interstate Route #93, a 
distance of two hundred and ninety-seven (297) feet more or less to a point; thence running 
in a northerly direction along the right-of-way of Interstate Route ^93, a distance of 
twelve hundred and sixteen (1,216) feet to a point; thence running in an easterly direction 
parallel with a stone wall and one hundred and fifty (150) feet from said stone wall a 
distance of twelve hundred and fifty (1,250) feet more or less to a point; thence running 
in a northerly direction parallel with a stone wall and thirty (30) feet from said stone 
wall to a point three hundred (300) feet from the southerly side of Park Street; thence 
running in an easterly direction parallel with Park Street and three hundred (300) feet 
from the southerly side of said Park Street to a point at the North Reading Town Line; 
thence running in a southerly direction along the North Reading Town Line a distance of 
forty-five hundred and seventy (1^,570) feet more or less to the point of beginning. 

Finance Committee recommended this article for approval, "In view of the fact that at least 
three professional studies made in the past ten years- have all indicated that the best use 
of this land area is for industrial or commercial purposes, it would appear that the ap- 
proval of this article is in the best interest of the Town. " 

Planning Board Report in part reads as follows: "The area is ideally suited for commercial 
and industrial use. While the isolation of the site, through natural barriers, is detri- 
mental to desirable residential development, this isolation is essential for intensive 
industrial and commercial purposes. The fact that the area abuts Route #93 and the Concord 
Street interchange insures a traffic pattern keyed to Route #93» This offers protection to 
the remaining network of Wilmington against a major increase in traffic volume. In conclu- 
sion, after weighing the pros and cons regarding the proposed rezoning, the Planning Board 
is of the opinion that it would be in the best interests of the Town to develop an indus- 
trial park on Route #93 an effort to broaden our tax base and bring financial relief to 
the Town, Therefore, the 'Planning Board recommends approval of Article 7 by the Town 
Mee ting , " 

During the discussion that followed. Selectmen Bender stated that the Selectmen were in 
favor of this motion, Mr. Courtney presented a map of the area to the meeting so that we 
could see the zoning change as outlined in the motion. 

Amendment by Theresa M. Hayes that Article 7 be amended by striking out the remainder of 
the article following the phrase "thence running in an easterly direction along the right- 
of-way of Interstate Route #93, a distance of two hundred and ninety-seven (297) feet more 
or less to a point" and inserting "thence in a northerly direction for one hundred eighty- 
five (185) feet more or less; thence in an easterly direction parallel with Concord Street 
to a point on the North Reading Town Line, no point on this line to exceed eighteen hundred 
(1800) feet north of Concord Street; thence in a southerly direction along the North Reading 
Town Line, a distance of eighteen hundred (I8OO) feet more or less to the point of be- 
ginning, A lengthy discussion on the amendment followed. Vote taken by voice on the amend- 
ment and Lost, and so declared by the Moderator, Vote to close arguments on main motion. , 
Yes - 319 No - 14.0, Vote on main motion by standing, , Yes - 321 No - 38 Motion carried. 

There being no further business, the Moderator declared the meeting adjourned at 10:30 p,m.
